The University of Oregon Libraries' Digital Scholarship Center grant program aims to support collaborative and creative use of resources through the creation of digital scholarship of enduring value to the University of Oregon and the greater scholarly community. We particularly welcome projects that projects that leverage library resources and collections, and that address issues related to diversity, inclusion, and equity. In general, we will prioritize projects that support our core University and Library missions and strategic initiatives.
The emphasis is on building a library of resources to support a range of scholarly activities at University of Oregon rather than creating individualized teaching applications or custom-designed web sites for a specific course. Digital collections created through this grants program will become a part of the University of Oregon digital library.
Individual project awards will be in the form of digital collection development services and systems provided by the Library, collaboration planning, and wages or summer stipends for research assistants. Proposals from tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty are welcome, as are collaborative projects that combine internal and external funding and other special programs.
2018 applications are currently under review.
Interested collaborators are welcome to schedule a consultation to discuss future projects.
