Digital Scholarship Lab reopens Monday

Brock University’s Digital Scholarship Lab (DSL) is reopening Monday, Feb. 28 for drop-in use.

The DSL is a collaborative and multi-disciplinary hub for digital scholarship on campus, offering faculty and student researchers tools and resources in support of research data management, data visualization, data processing, digital preservation and digital pedagogy.

While many of the DSL’s workshops and resources are available online, the tools and technology it offers are located on the ground floor of the Rankin Family Pavilion (RFP 216).

Since January, the space has been available by appointment only. Beginning Feb. 28, in-person, drop-in hours will resume Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The DSL is home to specialized equipment, such as high-performance computers that can help Brock faculty and student researchers manage, analyze and visualize data; and a state-of-the-art visualization wall that features three 70-inch high-definition LCD display panels for presenting various forms of digital content.

Brock researchers and instructors are invited to pop by the space to see what’s available and consult with DSL staff about their research or data needs, such as high-performance computing; data management, storage and visualization; and digital book and journal publishing.

DSL staff can also work with instructors to schedule class workshops in the space or online, and develop modules that fit their course curriculum.

Free online workshops, listed on ExperienceBU and Eventbrite, take place regularly on topics such as computational programming, data management and geographic information systems.
