Digital Projects and Curation

Digital Projects and Curation outlines the new programs available to faculty, staff and students initiating a digital humanities research project. It also lists the services available from Digital Humanities consultations, integration of in-class digital pedagogy, to the creation of online exhibitions. Parties interested in any of these programs are encouraged to reach out to the library through the email links and forms on the site.

Digital Projects/Digital Research

The Library is cultivating an environment that provides consultations to faculty or students wishing to conduct research involving digital technology including research in Digital Humanities (DH). As part of this initiative the Library encourages newcomers or experts in digital project to come forward with their ideas and explore the available Library supports.

The library recognizes the multidisciplinary aspect of digital projects and its use of digital tools and techniques to conduct research. For that reason, the Library seeks to support members of the Laurier community in preparing for such projects. According to community interest and need, the Library will develop the infrastructure necessary to mobilize digital project research outputs. These supports include identifying suitable research methods, technical requirements, and planning for the functional and technical aspects of a project.

Online Exhibitions

The library hosts a curated exhibition on its Online Exhibitions site. Those interested in staging an online exhibition are encouraged to review the content on the exhibits.wlu.ca and complete an exhibition project proposal.

Any questions regarding these services can be directed to libdigitalproject@wlu.ca.
