Digital Scholarship

Digital Scholarship refers to new forms of analysis, data visualization, and communication made possible by current and evolving software.

Digital Scholarship includes both born-digital materials and the analysis and visualization of texts that were originally print. Support for Digital Scholarship projects is provided by a variety of faculty and staff at the university, including personnel from Joyner Library, the University Multimedia Center (UMC), and the Digital Innovation and Scholarship in the Social Sciences and Humanities (DISSH) Lab.
