Introducing UVic Libraries Digital Scholarship Commons – AKA The Library Makerspace

Learn – Create – Collaborate

The UVic Libraries Digital Scholarship Commons (DSC):

  • serves all disciplines & communities. 
  • Helps the community explore and express ideas in ways other than text
  • helps with data management & long-term planning.

The DSC does this by:

  • Offering free workshops for students, faculty and staff to learn new skills (3D design & printing, electronics, video editing, virtual & augmented reality, data visualization, data analysis, podcasting, website building, and more!)
  • Makes available a collaborative learning environment in the library
  • Lends tools (3D printers, electronics kits, DSLR cameras, tripods, 360 cameras, microphones, VR room, 3D scanners, and more!)
  • Offers consultation services for the tools we support.
