Digital Initiatives is an outgrowth of the digital preservation and project expertise of the faculty, staff, and students in the Archives and Special Collections Department. The primary goal is to create a collaborative space where librarians can work with faculty, staff, and students to produce a broad variety of digital projects. This will expand the capacity for digital scholarship at UAH and allow more opportunities for students and faculty to learn new digital skills and create digital projects which will be stored and curated long-term by the Salmon Library. This work can manifest itself in a variety of ways, but all require a synergy of the appropriate tools, knowledge, and skills to be successful. In addition to a concept, digital initiatives has a workspace on the second floor of the Salmon Library. The Digital Initiatives Lab (DIL) is located in Library 222. Contact one of our faculty to learn more about our ongoing projects, or to collaborate with us to explore new opportunities.
The Digital Initiatives Lab (DIL) is a unique and creative space where the Archives, Special Collections and Digital Initiatives team works together or cooperatively with faculty, students, and staff on a variety of digital projects. Some of the uses of this space include:
The Digital Initiatives Lab is open Tuesday and Thursday 1-3 p.m. or by appointment.
