Data and Digital Scholarship Services

Digital Scholarship Services

Digital scholarship encompasses a wide array of practices that utilize digital tools and resources to enhance research, teaching, and scholarly communication. It involves techniques like data analysis and visualization, geographic information systems and digital mapping, computational text analysis, text encoding, digitization and imaging, audio and video production, 3D modeling, creating digital collections and exhibits, and metadata creation.

Digital scholarship serves as a bridge between traditional research methods and emerging technologies, but it goes beyond just using digital tools. Digital scholarship promotes open access to knowledge, interdisciplinary collaboration, innovative thinking, and public engagement. Additionally, it equips scholars to thrive in an increasingly digital world by cultivating essential skills for the digital age like critical knowledge production, responsible research, and computational thinking. 

You may be a digital scholar if your work encourages a collaborative mindset across all disciplines with a focus on leveraging technology to analyze data, generate new knowledge, and disseminate research effectively.
