Who We Are

The SU Digital Scholarship Space (DSS) is a workshop, laboratory, and classroom space designed for the study and creation of digital artifacts and experiences. 

The DSS is designed to maximize flexibility in response to emerging digital practices and supports software design, game study and development, statistical analysis and data visualization, digital mapping, and digital humanities projects across a variety of disciplines. Equipped with high-end computers and virtual reality platforms, we offer a broad range of software and can install new and experimental software packages upon request. 

Hosted in room 458 of Bird Library, the DSS includes a room for classes, meetings, presentations, and screenings for up to 25 participants, with an adjacent space for play, development, and study. The DSS is available for all campus users to book events and course meetings on topics that take advantage of DSS technology and services. During the week, the DSS hosts open lab hours for students to use the equipment for class-related and personal projects. Registered members can apply to have access during extended hours. We also welcome proposals for enhanced functionality as part of academic projects.
