Digital Scholarship

Our Digital Scholarship Services create a community of practice for research and creative activities, opening new possibilities by extending traditional methods of research and pedagogy through application of new technologies and digital media to advance the teaching and learning processes. This includes, but is not limited to, pedagogical digital projects, working with data (cleaning, management, visualization, and analysis), digital publishing, and more.

Digital Scholarship Services and Projects

Workshops and Trainings

The Binghamton Digital Humanities Research Institute (DHRI) is a training offered to faculty and graduate students who are interested in new technologies and integrated innovative computational methods with long-standing approaches to the study of literature, art, culture and society. It is co-organized by our Digital Scholarship Librarian, Amy Gay, and Art History professor, Nancy Um.

In addition to the Binghamton DHRI, the Libraries offer workshops, webinars, and lectures on digital scholarship related methods, technologies, and concepts. Some of our more recent events included an on-campus talk by Johanna Drucker (Breslauer Professor of Bibliographical Studies, Department of Information Studies, UCLA), a workshop on R programming, and a workshop on creating data management plans using the DMPTool (view slides for this workshop). To view upcoming events, check out the Libraries Events and Workshops page.

Research and Pedagogy Applications

Faculty have applied their new skills to their own research projects and incorporated them into their courses, offering students hands-on experience with creating their own digital projects. Check out some recent projects:

We have also seen the development of interdisciplinary interest groups across campus, including the DataViz Interest Group and Spatial Humanities Working Group (SHWG) come out of our first DHRI. Both groups are open to new members with interest at any stage of development in these fields. Each of these groups hold sessions to showcase projects, current software and technologies, and hold open discussions related to research and research related questions of attendees.  If you are interested in attending future SHWG meetings, contact our Digital Scholarship Librarian.

Curation, Preservation, and Open Sharing

To help increase the access and discoverability of research expertise at Binghamton, the Libraries manage the Open Repository @ Binghamton (the ORB). Learn more about the ORB.

In addition to the ORB, the Libraries offer support for long-term preservation and accessibility of digital materials through our digital preservation system, Rosetta. Learn more about Digital Preservation.

Integrate Open Educational Resources (OERs) into your teaching.  The Libraries' OER guide provides information on creating and locating material to use in your courses.  Learn more about OER.

Digital Scholarship Center

With the needs of space, technology, and software increasing, the Libraries are building our first Digital Scholarship Center as part of Bartle Library’s third floor renovation

While our new Center is in development, the Libraries have launched a pilot Digital Scholarship Center located in Science Library, Room 209. Our pilot Center offers space for collaborations, presentations, technology, and software to help view research data, projects, and pedagogy in new innovative ways. In Spring 2021, added as an extension of the Center, the Libraries will have a Recording Studio located on the main floor of Bartle Library.
