Project objectives

The Lever Initiative has been established with the following objectives:

1. To understand the current challenges for authors and readers in producing and accessing high quality scholarship in the liberal arts

2. To identify the critical unmet needs of the community that may require a new approach to publishing in the liberal arts

3. To review the opportunities that a networked, multi-media online environment offers for presenting and sharing scholarship in new ways

4. To explore the role that liberal arts colleges could or should have in addressing these challenges and meeting these needs.

We are following a program of research over a 6 month period from August through to December 2013, to help us meet these objectives.
