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.

Schedule of Events for Fall 2023

Digital Gardening Series

Date: Bi-Weekly on Wednesdays beginning September 6

Time: 3 - 5 p.m.

Description: The digital gardening series is based off of the general idea and movement first coined by Mike Caulfield in the article titled "The Garden and the Stream: A Technopastoral". For this series we will be approaching web development, the creation of websites, through a community-centered lens rethinking what it means to be 'present' on the web. While the workshops will mainly be focused on learning and using tools and languages to create web content each day will also encourage critical conversations about 'how' and 'why' we interact on the internet.

Location: In-person (SL-209) 

Registration: Please fill out our registration form to sign-up

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.
