What is Digital Scholarship?

Digital Tools in the DSL

The Digital Scholarship Lab (DSL) is a state-of-the-art lab that supports digital scholarship, e-research, cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovation. Researchers can access, integrate, and share current and future research across all disciplines using digital tools and resources such as the following:

  • Graphics Intensive Applications - create professional presentations and multi-media productions, including photographic, audio, animation and video editing.
  • Rendering & Visualization - use 3D scanner to make accurate models of medium-sized objects.
  • Large Video Display Wall - use for viewing presentations in a theater-like area.
  • Interactive Computing - can use for team-based activities, presentations, video teleconferencing and active learning.
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) - produce fully detailed maps layered with current and historical data for cross-disciplinary geospatial projects.
  • Modeling - use 3D Modeling software like SolidWorks, Creo and Tableau to create fast simulation.
  • Mathematical calculation and statistical software - find software such as SPSS and MatLab
  • Z Space Virtual Reality - can view interactively models in 3D.  View tutorial .
  • Prototyping and Creation - turn your models created virtually, into low-cost real world prototypes with 3D printing.
  • Technology Lending -check out the latest gadgets and innovative devices available from the iDesk.
  • Workshops and Consulting - check the DSL schedule for upcoming workshops or schedule a consultation.

GIS, Geospatial Data & Statistical Analysis

Geospatial and Statistical Consultations

The library provides services to help faculty, students connect  with the resources and tools to meet research goals. Services include:

  • helping users find data sets they need to use for their project,
  • introducing users to resources that display data,
  • and showing users how to identify the correct data for their use.

For GIS assistance, contact: Librarian Rob Sippel at 321-674-7585, or rsippel@fit.edu.
