The David Kirk Digital Scholarship Commons is located on the ground floor of McHenry Library. The Commons offers a variety of spaces for study and digital creation as well as audio, video, and VR equipment for checkout. Our companion space, the Digital Scholarship Innovation Studio, can be found on the lower level of the Science and Engineering Library.
At the David Kirk Digital Scholarship Commons, we are committed to:
The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
The land acknowledgement used at UC Santa Cruz was developed in partnership with the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band Chairman and the Amah Mutsun Relearning Program at the UCSC Arboretum.
