The Digital Scholarship Lab exists to assist Ball State University faculty and staff in conceiving, developing, and sustaining digitally based research projects and creative endeavors. It provides a single point of entry for accessing the expertise and resources necessary to generate scholarship with the potential to earn external funding.
Often interdisciplinary and necessarily collaborative, digital scholarship involves the use of digital evidence and tools to advance knowledge. It encompasses research that employs new technologies to address established questions and to pose new ones. It also involves new forms of scholarly communication, particularly through the dissemination and preservation of research for academic and public audiences in digital form.
Ball State's Digital Scholarship Lab is an initiative of the Office of the Provost and the University Libraries.
