Digital Scholarship at UCSC Libraries
Here you can find information about a selection of our past events, including our yearly Digital Scholarship Symposium.
This symposium showcases innovative undergraduate research and celebrates the digital projects that students develop in class. The DSC has hosted the symposium since 2017.

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.
