From the Brown Daily Herald:
In an effort to support the use of new technologies in teaching, learning and research, the University Library launched the Center for Digital Scholarship in 2009. The center will serve as “a focal point … at Brown for digital humanities and digital library methods and tools,” according to the CDS Web site.
The CDS is the result of a merger of three existing programs — the Center for Digital Initiatives, the Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers Project. The three programs were already collaborating, and “the convergence (was) natural,” said Massimo Riva, a professor of Italian studies who has worked closely with the CDS.
