Digital Projects Toolkit

A collection of resources, tools, and consultative services to support the development of digital scholarship and pedagogy projects created by or in collaboration with the University Libraries.


Do you have an idea for a digital project for your research, teaching, or publication and wondering how to take the next step? Are you interested in connecting with others who share an interest in digital scholarship?

The University Libraries’ staff and faculty are equipped to offer consultation and, in some cases, collaboration on a variety of needs including:

  • Creating digital collections/archives
  • Curating digital exhibits
  • Co-designing assignments involving student digital projects
  • Digital storytelling
  • Digital humanities research methods
  • Digital scholarly publishing tools
  • Research data management practices


Request a Consultation

Use this form to request a consultation with a member of the University Libraries team about your project idea.



The University Libraries invites you to share your ideas at any stage of development. 

You do not need a well-formed idea at this point, just a willingness to to talk about your interests and goals for developing the project. We can help to identify potential resources, tools, and collaborators who can help move your project forward.

The only thing you are committing to by submitting this form is a conversation. A member of the University Libraries' team will reach out to schedule an introductory consultation.

This Scalar project was developed by Eshaan Garst, a student in the Spring 2022 History 498 Capstone course. Each student in the course developed a digital project that was intended to communicate an aspect of their research topic to a public audience. Garst's project explores the allied occupation of Japan following World War II through the lens of reform.
