What is digital scholarship, and 
why does it matter? 
November 20th, 2014
•GPorovaidel nsec:e swsaryh baackgtr oIun dc viaa thnes ed o 
workshops and Sherman Centre website, 
events, and staff. 
• Allow you to begin charting your own course, 
and figure out what kind of engagement you 
want with digital scholarship. 
• Make digital scholarship a safer, less 
intimidating, and more welcoming space for 
experimenting. 
• Start building a digital scholarship cohort at 
McMaster.
Limits: what I can’t do 
CAN BECOME 
A DIGITAL SCHOLAR
But don’t worry...
The point of this 
workshop is not to 
convert you to digital 
scholarship.
There is no single 
way of being a digital 
scholar.
Defining DS 
• “the use of digital evidence, [or] methods of 
inquiry, [or] research, [or] publication and[/or] 
preservation to achieve scholarly and research 
goals.” (Scholarly Communication Institute, University of Virginia) 
• By its stability, or lack thereof 
• By the diversity of tools and methods that are 
being used
Digital scholarship? 
Or Digital 
• Many of thhe touols/mmethoads/pnrojeicttsi ine digsital? humanities can be 
adapted for digital scholarship, and vice-versa. 
• Primary difference: digital “stuff” may feel more unfamiliar to 
humanities scholars and departments — effecting the way that 
you frame what you’re doing. 
• As a result of this unfamiliarity, it may be easier to find how-to 
guides/tutorials by searching for “digital humanities” than DS. 
• Do you see a difference between the two? If so, it’s probably 
worth discussing further…
Why values? 
• While the tools, projects, and methods are 
diverse, values tend to be more consistent 
• The values that inform digital scholarship 
are key to deciding what you want to do 
• Understanding the values that drive digital 
scholarship allows you to participate in 
conversations whether or not you yourself 
identify as a digital scholar.
Values behind DS 
(not all of these values must be present simultaneously) 
• adaptive 
• sustainable/resourc 
e-aware 
• multimodal 
• interdisciplinary 
• auto-didactic 
• collaborative 
• ad hoc 
• process & product-driven 
• accessible 
• public & transparent 
• project-oriented 
• transparency

Questions 
What do you see as the project’s goals and/or 
priorities? 
Which DS values do you see in operation? 
What sort of usage (and user) is being posited? 
What aspects (if any) aren’t working well? 
Is there anything else that stands out, or raises 
questions for you?
The big question: 
What do you want to 
do with digital 
scholarship?
