Digital Scholarship at Schaffer Library
Digital scholarship is research and teaching that critically engages with data and computing technologies. Digital scholars employ computational tools and methods (such as 3D / AR / VR) to extend knowledge production, dissemination, and preservation, while also uncovering technology’s limitations, biases, and misuses to create a more just and equitable digital world.
No VPN Needed
When accessing digital resources through our catalog, you will be prompted to log in using your Union username and password. You do not need a VPN. Note: students studying abroad and international students at home may need the VPN before starting research. For more information, we have put together a guide on getting off-campus access. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about our online resources or if you encounter problems finding and accessing digital content.
