If you have visited the Weston Library recently, you may have seen a large room on the first floor, visible from Blackwell Hall, above the public entrance, with “Centre for Digital Scholarship” engraved on the door. The Centre ran a skeleton series of events there last term, and are delighted to announce that it is now up and running!
The aim of the Centre for Digital Scholarship is to facilitate the transformation of scholarly practice across the University of Oxford, and of engagement with Libraries’ collections, through this multi-disciplinary hub. It will support teaching, learning, and research across the University by working with students, professional staff, and academics through a programme of training and seminars; and digitally engaging the public.
The Centre has an exciting series of research seminars, training and workshops for Michaelmas term which you can browse on our Events page, the Bodleian Digital blog and the Bodleian Libraries’ What’s On page. They are all free, but you will need to register to reserve a place. You can also drop-in to digital project and ORA surgeries every Monday morning of term, or join colleagues for digital coffee afternoons every Monday afternoon in the Weston Library's Visiting Scholars' Centre.
What are you waiting for!?
