About DSI

Digital Scholarship and Initiatives (DSI), a division within University Libraries, engages and collaborates with library partners, campus, and community to support new scholarship in a rapidly changing digital landscape. DSI provides and sustains innovative digital tools and publishing platforms for content delivery, discovery, analysis, data curation, and preservation. In line with the library's mission, DSI is committed to representing and reflecting the unique experiences and perspectives of all people, partners, and the community. We enhance student learning and encourage faculty research, primarily by providing access to and information about new methods of digital scholarship and lending support in the areas of copyright, fair use, and intellectual property.
