Digital Scholarship

Existing and emerging digital technologies affect how we envision our library and deliver educational programs. Digital Scholarship at the Museum develops and collaborates on projects that seek to engage a wide audience.

  • Create and use tools that support digital access and scholarly activities.
  • Integrate digital tools and methods with traditional scholarly research.
  • Create shared spaces, both virtual and physical, where research and learning can take place.
