Libraries are uniquely positioned to establish the asset curation and management routines necessary to support robust teaching and research collections with online information sources as well as those held by instructors (e.g., slides, artifacts, observational recordings, oral histories) that are not always easily transitioned online. This case study discusses the assessment of faculty needs regarding the digital curation of teaching and research assets, explores issues relating to the diversity of faculty content, preferences for use, interest in search- able repositories, copyright and fair use, workflows, and Digital Asset Management System (DAMS) design associated with the production, management and access of teaching and research asset collections. It also looks at the broader implications regarding digital preservation and archival acquisition. Renfro, the author of the popular website Personal Knowledge Management for Academia & Librarians, presents techniques and applications offering new avenues of scholarship and community building for research faculty, and outlines ways in which liaison librarians can capitalize on the emerging outreach opportunities offered by the content curation movement.
