The Digital Research Commons
The Digital Research Commons (DRC) opened as a dedicated space within UH Libraries for the UH community to engage in digital research. Faculty and students receive hands-on instruction, attend workshops and talks, and use cutting-edge tools to answer research questions.
The DRC serves as an incubator for the dynamic and vibrant intellectual community at UH, fostering projects involving digital techniques across the humanities, social sciences, and experimental sciences, and connecting scholars from diverse fields of inquiry. In its first year, the DRC sponsored ten projects with logistical, intellectual, and modest financial support, with the goal of producing plans, prototypes, or proofs of concept for long-term digital research.
