Brown University Library Center for Digital Scholarship
"Formed in 2009 through the merger of the Scholarly Technology Group, the Women Writers Project and the Center for Digital Initiatives, the Center for Digital Scholarship has greatly expanded the Library's ability to support and explore new forms of scholarship. The CDS is developing a cohesive and far-reaching program that supports scholars engaged in creating, using and disseminating scholarly materials in a wide range of digital media. In partnership with faculty and other technology groups on campus, the CDS actively builds digital collections, creates tools for collecting, organizing, preserving, analyzing and authoring digital information and enhances the use of digital collections and related tools to generate new intellectual products. Our talented staff serve as a key resource to faculty and students across a broad range of disciplines to capture and create new knowledge, building the infrastructure and tools needed to support digital scholarship at Brown and across the academic landscape"
