Welcome to Digital Scholarship

The Digital CoLab at Olin Library

The Digital CoLab supports new and experimental approaches to research and teaching that are most often associated with the humanities and qualitative social sciences.

We offer one-on-one consultations, workshops, and classroom instruction on projects including:

  • Digital exhibits or digital publications
  • Maps
  • Privacy
  • Computational text analysis (Words are data too!)
  • Network analysis
  • Database design and maintenance
  • Finding or preparing data with Optical Character Recognition (OCR), APIs, webscraping or other methods.
  • Troubleshooting or remixing Python or R code for any of the above tasks.
