What is digital scholarship? How does digital scholarship intersect with teaching and research? What about “open” and scholarly publishing? How can digital and open scholarship advance equity and social justice?

The Library is here to work with you on all of these questions and more! We have several guides that can help you get started with the basics:

With DS@UWB, we’ll expand on these resources and delve into special topics, highlight work you’re doing, address your questions, share events and news, post training opportunities for various tools and technologies, and more. Most importantly, we hope to facilitate the various aspects of your work that fall under the broad umbrella of “digital scholarship” and connect you with the people and technologies you need to do that work.

The Library is committed to anti-racism, equity, and diversity, including a commitment to facilitating and supporting the work of faculty and students who are creating anti-racist open and digital scholarship. The Library’s digital scholarship engagement is also guided by the UW Libraries’ Strategic Direction, “Enhance Equitable Environments for Research, Learning, and Working,” which aims to:

  • Elevate the voices of historically underrepresented communities at UW and in the Pacific Northwest by partnering to create, preserve and increase access to culturally-relevant information resources.
  • Strengthen contributions to campus-wide initiatives on equity and social justice by actively partnering with UW faculty, staff and students to support equity-focused research, teaching, learning and staff development.
