Digital Scholarship Initiatives Publications

Permanent URI for this collection

Digital scholarship is scholarship that is enhanced by the design of digital projects, incorporation of digital tools, collaboration among digital partners, and dissemination through digital platforms. Digital scholarship is changing the nature of how research is conducted, produced, and shared.

Digital Scholarship Initiatives, an extension of the mission of the Walker Library as an active partner in the scholarly communication process, supports the educational mission of the university by providing access to information. Walker Library has invested resources to establish the necessary and supportive infrastructure used in the creation and dissemination of digital resources.
