ARL Digital Scholarship Institute


The ARL Digital Scholarship Institute (DSI) is a five-day, cohort-based opportunity for library professionals and graduate students enrolled in a library and information science program who are new to digital scholarship and would like to develop their skills in an intensive, yet supportive, learner-centered environment. Guided by the principles of community, diversity, impact, openness, and sustainability, the Digital Scholarship Institute foregrounds critical thinking about the content and context of the modern research environment. Participants are trained in a core set of methodologies and tools that provide both a knowledge base and the confidence to work with the cultural changes sweeping through research libraries and higher education today.

The ARL Digital Scholarship Institute is co-sponsored by the following institutions: Boston College Libraries; the University Library, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; The Ohio State University Libraries; River Campus Libraries, the University of Rochester; and UC San Diego Libraries.

Former sponsoring libraries include University of Indiana Bloomington Libraries.
