Center for Digital Scholarship

Building a New Center for Digital Scholarship

The Library has established a Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) that will be a nexus for intellectual energy and growth, providing services that facilitate the exploration of new methodologies, the analysis of complex data, the visualization of theoretical and spatial relationships, and the sharing and preservation of research results. Read more about the Library's vision for the CDS.

While the CDS will bring new staff resources and focused energy to supporting digital scholarship, it will build on services that the Library already provides. Below are some of the services currently in place to facilitate your research.

Feel free to contact Stacie Williams, Center for Digital Scholarship Director, to discuss further ways we might partner with you on a project or help with your research as we put the building blocks for the CDS in place.

Share and Preserve your Research in our Institutional Repository

Knowledge@UChicago is a service designed to preserve and share the scholarly and creative assets of the University. The repository is available to the community as a platform to share and preserve publications, data, audio/video, and other research outputs. Please visit our FAQ, or contact us, if you are interested in depositing material, building a collection, or have repository needs for grant compliance. The institutional repository is a collaboration between the Library and IT Services at the University of Chicago.

Get Help Managing Your Data

The Library can help you acquire and work with data ranging across many disciplines from GIS to social sciences data to energy economics. We can also help you formulate or find resources for your grant data management plan. For more information, contact data-help.

Research guides:

Scholarly Communication

The scholarly publishing world is going through a rapid transformation. Changes to funding agency policies, negotiating author rights, and copyright in the classroom, are now a regular part of academic life. The Library understands the scholarly communication environment and is here to help you increase the impact of your research. Contact Scholarly Communications Librarian Nora Mattern for support.

Digital Humanities

The Library has a long history of supporting digital humanities initiatives, from ARTFL to OCHRE. We currently partner with the DH Forum to host regular events in the Library.
