The Scholars Commons is a UT Libraries pilot initiative introducing new spaces and approaches to research and data lifecycle support at UT Austin.
We hope to support and inspire scholarship through research consultations; a data lab with advanced software; workshops introducing tools for digital scholarship, data analysis, and scholarly communication; spaces for collaboration; and exhibits and events that provide opportunities for scholars to share their research.
We offer information and consultations for copyright issues and authors who have questions about where and how they can share their work, and are interested in learning more about retaining rights to their work.
University undergraduates are engaged in research in libraries and archives, in labs, and in the field. The Images of Research Competition provides any undergraduate doing research at the university the opportunity to share that research with a broad audience across campus and outside of academia.
