USask Murray Library new home for digital research

A new home for the Digital Research Centre (DRC) is helping make research, artistic works, and items of cultural significance more accessible to faculty and graduate students, as well as members of the community.

The University Library has partnered with the College of Arts and Science to expand research support at the University of Saskatchewan (USask). The DRC, previously located in the Arts Building, will officially open its new location on the second floor of the Murray Library this month.

“The library is uniquely positioned on campus to dedicate discipline-neutral space to facilitate digital research,” said Dr. Melissa Just (EdD), dean of the University Library. “The DRC will allow our faculty and students to capitalize on library expertise and information resources, and apply digital research tools, methods and skills to create and produce innovative scholarly outputs.”

The DRC works with researchers to create digital platforms, assist with digital asset management, and support the development of grant proposals for research involving digital technologies.
