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 projects including assignments involving student digital projects, digital exhibits, creating digital archives, digital storytelling, and a variety of digital humanities research methods.
