Interested in digital scholarship and scholarly communication? Join us this fall semester as Falvey Memorial Library offers several opportunities for you to learn more about digital tools, pedagogy, scholarly publishing, copyright, and more!

Throughout the semester, Falvey’s Digital Scholarship Program will host community conversations on digital scholarship tools as well as research and publishing topics. These informal virtual meetups are designed to facilitate collaborative learning and connection across all disciplines and departments at Villanova University.

Each meeting will begin with a 20-30 minute introduction to a digital scholarship or scholarly communication tool or reading (check out the list below), with the rest of the hour dedicated to informal chatting and related discussions.

All Villanova community members are welcome to attend, regardless of their prior experience with digital scholarship or scholarly communication! Feel free to stop by to join the conversation and meet other faculty members, students, and Villanova staff who share an interest in digital research methods, digital humanities, scholarly publishing, and the unique challenges we all are facing in our current remote environment. Workshops are sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, are ACS-approved, and will be hosted by either Erica Hayes, Digital Scholarship Librarian, or Sarah Wipperman, Scholarly Communication Librarian.

Coming to Falvey: Digital Scholarship Lab

By Shawn Proctor

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.

For more information about the lab or digital scholarship, contact Erica Hayes at erica.hayes@villanova.edu or call 610-519-5391.
