The University will soon have access to a new Digital Scholarship Lab at Falvey Memorial Library, which will promote the use of digital technology and cultivate experimentation, collaboration, and discovery of digital tools and methods to enhance Villanova’s research community.
Located on the second floor of the Library near the Learning Commons, the Digital Scholarship Lab will provide consultation space, workshops, training, and technical equipment and software for a variety of activities, including but not limited to GIS mapping, text and data mining, data visualization, digital publishing, and creating digital exhibits.
“We are committed to learning digital tools in collaboration with faculty, students, and staff through trial, error, and experimentation. Acting as a connector, this new lab will bring together community members interested in learning these new technologies, so they can apply them to their teaching and research,” says Erica Y. Hayes, Digital Scholarship Librarian.
The Digital Scholarship Lab is expected to be completed by mid-April.

Shawn Proctor, MFA, is a Communication and Marketing Program Manager at Falvey Memorial Library.
