Digital Scholarship

The Libraries provide pedagogical support for the exploration of new technologies and digital collections which expand scholarship and making.

Want more background on Digital Scholarship and Digital Humanities? "A Short Guide to the Digital_Humanities" is a good introduction to the subject.

Student Projects

The student and faculty works page showcases digital scholarship produced by students and faculty at the college, in collaboration with the Libraries. In addition to showcasing work, our goal is to bring projects from across the college's programs into dialogue with one another.

Digital Tools

Recent Library/Faculty Collaborations

iPad Pro Pilot Library Exhibition poster

The iPad + Apple Pencil Project, led by the Design Division, in collaboration with the Libraries, is a multi-year project geared towards further developing the CCA Digital Tools Program. In academic year 2017-'18 we piloted the tool in several courses, collecting assignments and selected student work, culminating in an exhibition in Simpson Library. We are moving into the next phase of the project, rolling it out as a service to the rest of the college, and developing curricula specific to working on the iPad with Apple pencil.
