Welcome to the University of Toronto Scarborough Library's Digital Scholarship Unit (DSU) website. The DSU provides UTSC-specific support for digital scholarship in the related areas of data, the digital humanities, digital collections building, digital archiving, and scholarly communications.

At the DSU we seek to embody the library's values by:

  • Prioritizing work that is or will be openly licensed
  • Seeking to make our work (FAIR) findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable
  • Developing and nurturing a network of collaborators in support of digital scholarship creation
  • Creating and facilitating access to appropriate tools for the analysis and study of collections
  • Facilitating access to hardware and software that enable new models of knowledge building
  • Promoting sustainable workflows, training, and appropriate documentation for digital research projects
  • Making our local digital special collections usable as data
  • Learning from one another
