About Us

Our Mission

The Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) provides consulting expertise, project coordination, and a technology-rich collaborative space for faculty, staff, and students to incorporate digital tools and methods into research, teaching, and publishing.

The multidisciplinary ECDS staff of technologists, librarians, faculty, curriculum designers, and students work with scholars at Emory and partner institutions to create innovative and sustainable models of digital scholarship and pedagogy for academic and public use.

ECDS provides a central point of contact for expertise in topics and methods such as:

  • statistical analysis
  • GIS and mapping
  • visualizing data
  • text analysis and electronic text encoding
  • online exhibitions
  • 3D environments
  • digital pedagogy
  • technology-enhanced assignments
  • digital publishing

ECDS is positioned as part of Libraries and Information Technology at Emory to better support partnering with the other entities within the group to successfully complete its digital scholarship efforts.
