David Kirk Digital Scholarship Commons

We're here to help you conduct meaningful digital research.


  • Learn about digital methods and tools—and get help deciding which one/s are right for you
  • Integrate digital tools and analysis into your teaching or research
  • Find digital tools for publishing and presenting your work
     

Consultations

Do you have a digital research project you want to move forward, or one you're brainstorming and want advice on how to get started? Do you have a digital assignment you want to integrate into your course, or a digital activity you'd like to try in class? We'd be happy to talk things over with you. Click below to schedule a consultation with DCS staff.

Walk-In Support

Need help with a specific digital tool or a specific aspect of your digital project? Consider dropping in during our walk-in support hours. During weeks 3–10 of each quarter, DSC and Digital Initiatives staff provide walk-in support for digital projects. This week's hours can be found below.

Our support hours are usually the same week to week but may change. Support for class assignments can only be provided during the posted hours. All support hours are held in the David Kirk Digital Scholarship Commons on the ground floor of McHenry Library.
