Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation
At Washington State University’s Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation (CDSC), community members, students, faculty and
researchers collaborate on digital projects and scholarship that crosses academic boundaries and public/private distinctions. The
CDSC provides support, outreach, training, and access to digitization hardware and software and inspiration for meaningful and
long-lasting partnerships.

The creation of the Center was approved by the Faculty Senate in November 2014, formalizing long-term collaborations
between faculty from the WSU Libraries and the College of Arts and Sciences. The central goal of the CDSC is to foster the
creation of digital tools, projects, public programming, and educational opportunities for the many publics the University serves
with an emphasis on ethical curation and collaborative scholarship. The work of the faculty, staff and students engaged with the
CDSC focuses on meeting the unique digital challenges and needs of underserved populations nationally.
The Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation facilitates and sustains digital scholarship and teaching at Washington State
University in support of the University’s strategic plan to foster exceptional research, innovation, and creativity. The CDSC is
committed to upholding WSU’s land-grant heritage and tradition of service to society by collaborating with and providing
support to a wide range of constituents. To fulfill our mission, the CDSC:
Partners with Native American and Indigenous communities to support the ethical curation of cultural resources
Provides best practices for the organization, digitization, and preservation of unique collections
Trains graduate students and provides opportunities for faculty development
Supports curriculum development, particularly the introduction of technology into courses to provide faculty and
students with hands-on opportunities
Assists scholars to explore new and emerging models of digital research, publishing, and peer-review
