Digital Scholarship Support

Daniel discusses the Digital Scholarship Department, digital methods assignment support, and digital tool workshops. He also describes the spaces and equipment to look forward to when we are back in-person.

Special Collections & Archives

Alix discusses the CART Fellowship, in which graduate students get hands-on experience working in the archives and also learn about exhibit curation and writing for a public audience. CART stands for Center for Archival Research and Training.

Alix discusses CART Commons, a participant-driven learning community focused on primary source research. This group meets a couple times a quarter and is open to all grad students.

Alix discusses ways to learn more about the CART programs, including the CART commons mailing list, and connect with Special Collections & Archives.
