- Assessing and choosing digital scholarship methods and approaches
- Digitization, curation, information visualization, project management, and other specific areas of digital scholarship
- Evaluating tools for digital scholarship
- Collaboratively designing and developing a digital scholarship project built around one of the Library’s digital archival collections
