The Digital Scholarship Commons has installed 8 workstations available to all students, faculty, and staff at UCSC. Each computer is dual boot, providing both a PC and MAC work environment. The Commons also has 3 scanners available for use.
The Digital Commons provides access to software and hardware, but we cannot provide expert support for all functionality. The user is responsible for all work conducted on these workstations.
The Digital Scholarship Commons workstations enable digital experimentation with new tools and methods. To access the new workstations, REGISTER for PASSWORD by filling out this form. <link to form>
The DSC lab workstations log usage statistics. We do not retain a record of websites visited or searched.
Usage statistics include information on which programs are being used and for how long. These statistics help us determine what software to maintain, workshops to offer, and how best to support the digital goals of our users.
