Here are some of the things we’ve been working on. You can read more about our activities and support for digital scholarship online.

January Digital Scholarship Workshops
L&IT is preparing for some interesting digital scholarship workshops for faculty during the week before classes begin in January. So far we are scheduling sessions for Tableau, R, WordPress, and multimedia. If you have any suggestions for topics please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Online Faculty Portfolios – Open House
On November 6 and 13 DP&S will be hosting open houses for faculty who are interested in enhancing their online web presence using WordPress. Each open house will be from noon – 1 p.m. in 124 Bertrand Library, Digital Scholarship Studio.
Open Access Week
October 21-25 was open access week, an annual celebration and reminder about the value of open access to knowledge and research around the world. Open access is the outcome of purposefully licensing scholarly resources for free use and distribution to provide equitable access to knowledge.
I’ve been encouraged during my time here at Bucknell by our shared values for promoting social justice. The Bucknell mission asks us “to educate our students to serve the common good and to promote justice in ways sensitive to the moral and ethical dimensions of life.” I believe that open access is one way for us to meet this mission.
BUDSC19 – 6th Annual Bucknell DS Conference
Bucknell hosted the 6th annual digital scholarship conference from October 11-13. The conference included 16 posters, and 32 presentations. Over 120 people attended and enjoyed the beautiful fall weather in Lewisburg while discussing the present and future of digital scholarship.
