About the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship

The Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS), located on the third floor of the Robert W. Woodruff Library, provides consultation and support for digital teaching, research, publishing, and preservation. We offer faculty and students the space, expertise, and project management assistance needed to develop innovative digital projects.

Our People

Our success is due, in large part, to the talented individuals with diverse and robust domains of expertise in areas of digital scholarship, as well as a passion for leveraging useful and engaging technology in research and pedagogy.

Areas of Expertise

ECDS brings together four units formerly housed in the Robert W. Woodruff Library: the Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC), the Electronic Data Center, the Lewis H. Beck Center for Electronic Collections, and the Emory Center for Interactive Teaching (ECIT). These units have each collaborated with Emory scholars who wish to incorporate technology into their teaching and research. The formation of ECDS breaks down barriers between these functions and simplifies the process of establishing partnerships with scholars.

    Key Partnerships

    ECDS partners with multiple groups across campus in order to support digital scholarship at Emory. By design, the core team within ECDS draws upon resources from other organizations in order to more effectively support the teaching and research mission of the University.

      Training & Workshops

      Seminars and workshops offered by ECDS reflect not only topics related to creating scholarly work but also discussions around how this type of work is seen across communities of inquiry.
