Plan a Digital Scholarship Project

A library guide to guide you through project planning for digital scholarship.

Discussions of Validity

As digital scholarship has emerged on campuses, many discussions have occurred about its benefits, validity, and value within fields such as the humanities and some social sciences. Many have claimed that digital scholarship is unsustainable, non-critical, and part of neo-liberal changes in higher education.  


Initiatives, such as institutional support, professorships, graduate and undergraduate courses, grants, and publications, helps to legitimize the field as a critical and valuable practice. We can do our part by thinking carefully about how and why to develop digital scholarship projects using project plans and developing project charters.
