Building Local Collaborations

I’d like to have a brainstorming session about how to build a network of collaborators for digital work on a particular campus or in a particular area. What kinds of skills and interests might you seek out and where within various institutions might you find these skills? What are some of the most useful ways to maintain relationships with these folks during and after the life of a project? How can you go about getting institutional support for these projects? I’ve had some experience building community around digital humanities this year but I’d love to think about how different models could work at different types of institutions too.
