Digital Scholarship

Introduction to digital scholarship resources, tools, and projects in the field of digital humanities.

What is Digital Scholarship?

There are many definitions for digital scholarship. One way to think about digital scholarship is the use of digital evidence and method, digital authoring, digital publishing, digital curation and preservation, and digital use and reuse of scholarship (Abby Smith Rumsey, "New-Model Scholarly Communication: Road Map for Change.")

This guide provides a basic introduction to finding digital scholarship tools, communities, and support. Curious about digital scholarship, have an idea, or are stuck on how to get started? Contact the library's digital scholarship experts at library-ds@umich.edu with any questions.
