Emory University’s Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) offers faculty members and graduate students the space, expertise, and project management assistance they need to develop innovative multidisciplinary projects. Located in the Research Commons of the Robert W. Woodruff Library, DiSC is supported by funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Whether working solo or as part of a group, DiSC patrons can:
- Build projects using the latest digital scholarship tools and software
- Partner with DiSC staff to add depth and insight to works of scholarship
- Connect with a community of scholars
- Reflect on the possibilities and challenges of these new technologies
DiSC employees hold advanced degrees in a variety of disciplines, and Emory Libraries’ subject liaisons are available to assist DiSC patrons with their projects.
Among the help available to faculty and graduate students at the Digital Scholarship Commons is assistance with:
- Electronic text encoding
- Geographic information systems (GIS)
