UO Libraries Opens New Digital Scholarship Center

UO Libraries Opens New Digital Scholarship Center

A new Digital Scholarship Center (DSC) at the UO Libraries will assist researchers who need to explore and use technology for analysis, expression, and distribution of their work.

The center is intended to transform research, interpretation, and scholarly communication by using new media and digital technologies. It is housed in Knight Library and will combine many of the library’s existing efforts and support services – including the Wired Humanities Projects – and will also offer training, a speaker series, consultation on tools, digital archiving, and sandbox server space for experimentation.

The DSC is in its initial development, but is already up and running.

The library has reallocated some of its existing resources and personnel to address the emerging needs that are being met by the center. Staff will most likely apply for grants from the Office of Research, Innovation and Graduate Education, as well as federal funding agencies.

For further information, please contact Karen Estlund, head of the DSC, at kestlund@uoregon.edu; Andrew Bonamici, bonamici@uoregon.edu;or Deborah Carver, dcarver@uoregon.edu.
