Our Team

The Digital Scholarship Lab is about people. Our team works to advance digital scholarship in the Libraries at MSU - find out how to meet and collaborate with them.

Our Values

The Digital Scholarship Lab:

  • Welcomes everyone from any discipline or level of experience;
  • Nurtures interdisciplinarity by serving as a crossroads for collaboration as people from across disciplines meet and learn from one another;
  • Provides professional help and camaraderie for using technology in research and learning (for example: help with software, data management, brainstorming project development);
  • Generates projects through the intersection of people, space, and technology.

Some technology in the DSL may involve changes in lighting, sound, and temperature, which can cause dizziness, motion sickness, nausea, or discomfort. If you experience any discomfort, please leave the area or alert DSL staff.

If you need assistance, accommodations, or have suggestions on how we can make our technology and services more accessible, please contact the MSU Libraries’ accessibility team at accessibility@lib.msu.edu or visit the DSL Desk.
