Resources

ECDS brings together librarians and IT professionals in support of activities related to digital scholarship, ranging from research to pedagogy. ECDS provides a central point of contact for expertise in statistical analysis, GIS, mapping, visualizing data, text analysis, online exhibitions, blended and online pedagogy, technology-enhanced assignments, and digital publishing. The formation of ECDS breaks down barriers between these functions and simplifies the process of establishing partnerships with scholars of all types in support of research and teaching. On this page, you will find more information about the hardware and software available in ECDS, the types of support that we offer, links to our training and workshops schedule, and our Educational Technology Toolkit.
