About the Rowan Libraries Digital Scholarship Center

The Rowan University Libraries Digital Scholarship Center (DSC) aims to empower and support learning, collaboration, creative and research activities, and the development of engaging scholarly products and unique educational experiences. We follow a student-as-partner approach offering opportunities for students to collaborate with faculty and community members in developing and curating digital projects, educational resources, and digital collections. These collaborations include unique learning opportunities such as course projects, research projects, Library initiatives, and internships. 

The DSC is also an inclusive and collaborative space where everyone in the Rowan community can access media design tools and library resources and develop the expertise necessary for creating digital media projects. In the DSC, all campus community members have equal opportunities to develop digital scholarship projects, enhance their technological literacy, learn how to organize and present their research, and express themselves creatively in the digital world. We offer a variety of services that support research and project development in the digital humanities and sciences.
