Digital Scholarship Support for Macalester Faculty and Students

Digital Scholarship Support is a resource for Macalester faculty and students, developed by members of the Library/Media Services and ITS, in cooperation with the Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching.

We can help with:

  • Finding collaborators on campus for creating your digital projects and proposals
  • Identifying digital tools for your scholarship and assisting project participants in learning them
  • Creating a long-term preservation plan for your project data
  • Training and consultation on digital scholarship development techniques, including metadata standards, engaging digital practices, and collaborative data gathering

Our goal is to connect you with the appropriate people and resources you need for successful digital scholarship.  We encourage you to contact the Digital Scholarship Group at any stage in your scholarly process.
