Digital Scholarship at UCSC Libraries
3D design is an incredibly powerful tool for scholars, researches, and students of all disciplines and levels. Creating engaging content that is both thought-provoking and accessible has created new spaces for people to share their stories. Allowing audiences to see data, research and projects fully formed in a digital 3D space opens the doors for new and invigorating dialogue around what that project can represent. We can offer robust advice and support for a wide range of 3D development methods and provide various tools to support the digital 3D life cycle. Our computer lab in the DSC and our workstations in the DSI contains up to date 3D modeling software packages. We also support the 3D visualization in virtual reality at our VizLab and 3D printing in the DSI.
The DSC offers a wide range of tools and spaces to support your digital 3D workflows.
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.
