SUNY New Paltz Digital Scholarship Center

What is digital scholarship?

“Digital scholarship, broadly defined, uses digital content and tools to pursue research and interpretation with the goal of furthering knowledge. While this work can take many forms, one common strand is that it makes use of the powers of computing to do things that may not have been possible otherwise. From intensive analysis of data sets, to the collaborative sharing of resources or projects across networks, to experiments in artificial intelligence, digital scholarship takes advantage of the speed, scale and reach that computers bring to information technologies–both within and across traditional disciplinary boundaries.”
