Spring 2020 Digital Scholarship Support

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


  • Learn about digital methods and tools—and get help deciding which ones 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 assignment you want to integrate into your course? 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? We'd be happy to talk things over with you in a Zoom consultation.

Online Support Drop-In Sessions

The DSC will continue to hold our drop-in support hours through the Spring Quarter using LibChat.  Click the button below when we're available to chat with our DSC student assistants.  Support hours are offered during weeks 3-10 and this week's schedule can be seen below.  The schedule typically remains the same, but may fluctuate slightly due to student availability.
