Digital Scholarship Support in the Library
U-M faculty and students engaged in scholarship in digital environments, including digital humanities and digital studies, will find a variety of support services and opportunities for collaboration within the library. If you’re new to digital scholarship or digital humanities, review our introductory guide for resources and examples.
The library offers a regular series of digital scholarship workshops most semesters, ranging from introductions to digital scholarship to more intensive study of digital research tools. We also hold digital scholarship office hours: librarians with expertise in data visualization, metadata, text and data mining, and more will be available for office hours every other Thursday from 3:00 - 4:00 pm, in Weiser Hall room 155, starting January 25, 2018 for the Winter semester.
You can visit the following centers in the library to get training, schedule consultations, or use tools and resources. We also provide additional resources: just Ask a Librarian.
