Digital Scholarship at UCSC Libraries

Help for Instructors

The Digital Scholarship Department is committed to helping instructors incorporate digital tools into the classroom and strives for an open dialog with faculty to discover ways digital projects can deepen learning.

What We Offer

Consultations for Instructors

  • Discuss assignment learning goals
  • Outline recommended digital methods and tools
  • Develop assignment scaffolding, including strategies for overcoming expected hurdles for students
  • Consider benefits of individual vs. group assignments

Support for Students (requires prior consultation by instructor with DS staff)

  • 1–2 workshops led by DS librarian
  • Class-specific tutorial/s hosted quarterly on the DS website
  • Peer-to-peer student chat support by DS student workers trained on your specific assignment


Supported assignments work best when Digital Scholarship Librarians can contribute and prepare for the course prior to the start of the quarter. This allows us to build time into our schedule, train our students on your assignment, and prepare for your specific course needs. For workshops and other one-time support needs, we request at least two weeks notice to best support your class.
