The Digital Scholarship Unit has space, equipment, tools, and expertise to collaborate with you on your course or research project. Our resources are for Library digital projects but can be used in partnership with our collaborators. When a partnership is formed with the Digital Scholarship Unit a Memorandum of Understanding is written to outline each partners responsibilities, timelines, and deliverables.
The Digitization Studio was built in 2019 to create preservation and access copies of materials from the Archives and Special Collections. The Studio is located on the 3rd floor of the Library and includes a photography workstation, digital scanner, and a high-performance computer for after-image processing. With our digitization equipment we can produce FADGI 4-Star images of documents, photographs, negatives, and oversize materials.
The Digital Scholarship Unit built an Omeka S installation in 2019 in partnership with Information & Instructional Technology Services (I&ITS) to rapidly develop small digital projects to address short-term Library needs. The Omeka S content management system enables our team to create digital exhibits, editions, and a range of scholarship not supported by current scholarly publishing venues. Omeka S can be used by faculty and students in developing digital knowledge mobilization projects in their research and teaching.
The Digital Scholarship built a Mukurtu installation in 2020 in partnership with Information & Instructional Technology Services (I&ITS) to rapidly develop small digital projects to address short-term Library needs. The Mukurtu content management system enables our team to rapidly create digital exhibits, editions, and a range of scholarship not supported by current scholarly publishing venues. Knowledge can be curated by multiple communities to provide different levels of access to the general public and specific groups. Access can be determined with cultural protocols, empowering the individuals and communities responsible for an item's representation and online use. Mukurtu can be used by faculty and students in their research and teaching to develop digital knowledge mobilization projects in ethically-minded ways.
To make the Library’s Digital Collections accessible and discoverable to researchers within and beyond the campus, the Digital Scholarship Unit stewards a variety of born-digital and digitized materials. In 2019, the Library subscribed to the digital collection platform Quartex, developed by Adam Matthew Digital. The Quartex content management system enables our team to curate digital collections of born-digital and digitized material from our Archives and Special Collections and partners’ collections.
