The Scholarly Commons, a unit of the University of Illinois Library, opened in August 2010 to
serve the emerging needs of faculty, researchers and graduate students pursuing in-depth
research and scholarly inquiry. We are …
… a consultation space in the Main Library
where experts are available to support exploration
of new models for teaching, learning, and research
in the contemporary academic environment.
… a sandbox to try advanced software and
specialized hardware for tasks such as text-
encoding, digitization, qualitative data analysis,
geospatial, textual, and numeric data analysis,
OCR, and Web usability.
… a virtual learning environment here on our
website highlighting workshops, tips, tools, and recently published articles.
We invite you to explore with us.
