89 SPEC Kit 350: Supporting Digital Scholarship
The needs of researchers vary greatly by discipline. STEM-based researchers tend to want short-term
guidance whereas in the humanities and arts, they want longer-term collaborations.
The selection is based on the three categories for which we support DS: GIS and digital mapping,
statistical analysis/support, making digital collections.
Wanted to answer “rarely” on all (less than sometimes, but more often than never).
We are in the process of identifying prospective research partners and planning for associated
infrastructure requirements.
We work closely with the Center for Digital Humanities.
