About

The Digital Initiatives Group (DIG) facilitates communication, assessment, collaboration, and knowledge about digital library services and collections across the Stanford University Libraries (SUL).

DIG’s extended cohort, DIG+Plus, provides a forum for ideas and a clearinghouse for digital initiatives in order to build bridges among library units by sharing expertise, experience, and enthusiasm.

Specific Responsibilities of DIG:

  • Support the acquisition, discovery, and analysis of social science data, and engage with the computational social science community
  • Support the creation, acquisition, use, and long-term curation of digital text and image collections, and engage with the digital humanities community
  • Support patron studies and project assessment design and analysis
  • Coordinate top-level library communication efforts to include top-level websites, SUL News, external publications, publicity, and signage
  • Support patron use of technology in libraries, with special emphasis on emerging technologies
