Digital scholarship is the use of digital methods of inquiry and publication venues to achieve scholarly outcomes. It is harnessing the power and flexibility of digital tools to reimagine and expand our ideas of research and scholarship. UT Libraries support digital scholarship in many ways. We have staff who can help think through all aspects of a digital project. We have subject liaisons who are experts on methods of research and publication in their areas. We have metadata experts who can offer advice on descriptive and administrative information that can make a project more findable and usable. We have data management experts who can advise on best practices for managing data and provide information about resources available here at UT. We provide journal publication support through Open Journal Systems. And, we provide infrastructure support for dissemination and preservation through our online archive, Texas ScholarWorks.
