Increasingly, scholars are producing works in non-traditional genres and mediums, published using alternative platforms. This presentation will describe some of the trends and unique affordances of multimodal scholarship across the digital arts, sciences and humanities domains, with an emphasis on the video format. Examples discussed include innovative multimodal digital art scholarship, a recent study on science journal digital video abstracts, and multimodal digital humanities publications. We will also discuss the potential implications of these emerging areas of scholarship on librarians and library services, illustrated by two case studies of multimodal digital humanities projects in libraries - Community Voices at the University of Washington (Bothell) and Immigrant Stories at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities).
