The Digital Scholarship Center (DSC) supports and advances the UO's teaching, learning, and research in the digital humanities and digital social sciences, by providing access to an array of academic/library technology services and resources, and by creating a focused collective of faculty experts using digital methods and technology to transform their work. The DSC is located in and administered by the UO Libraries, in partnership with multiple stakeholders and a Council of faculty advisors.
The DSC's goals are to:
- Fuel innovation and encourage interdisciplinary inquiry by providing ready access to experts in the digital humanities and digital social sciences, and to the wide range of technologies that enable this work.
- Enhance the creation and dissemination of UO’s innovative humanistic teaching, research, and scholarship, through new forms of open-access, sustainable publishing and production of digital media, learning objects, and other scholarly products.
- Develop training programs, networking opportunities, and outreach events related to the digital humanities and digital social sciences, working in collaboration with faculty members, librarians, and technologists.
- Establish a central, holistic gateway for external audiences, scholars, and industry to access UO’s distinctive research and scholarship in the digital humanities and digital social sciences.
