Center for Digital Scholarship

Building a New Center for Digital Scholarship

The Library is investing in 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 elong@uchicago.edu 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.

Institutional Repository

Knowledge@UChicago is a service designed to preserve and share the scholarly, creative, and administrative 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.

Data Management

We have created a number of guides to help get you started with your data management needs. For more information, contact your librarian or email datahelp@lib.uchicago.edu.

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.

Digital Humanities

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