Digital Scholarship can be defined as “integrating innovations in multimedia, interactivity, linked data, or data visualization” across all different disciplines, allowing for new methods of scholarly communication, publication, and discovery of research projects.
Digital Scholarship Hub
The Digital Scholarship Hub in the Richard J. Daley Library was developed to provide an interdisciplinary digital scholarship space that is open to UIC faculty, students, and staff. Visitors to the Hub can meet with librarians and Digital Humanities Initiative staff members for help with digital humanities, digital scholarship, digital publishing, GIS (geographic information system), data science and other projects.
Equipment and software available at the Hub includes GIS data visualization displays, 3D printers, a sewing machine, a laser cutter, and computers outfitted with software for data and text mining, scanning and prototyping technologies.
Hours of Operation
The Hub is currently available by appointment only.
