By on October 6, 2016

scolars-studioThe Scott Nygren Scholars Studio, located in Rm. 212 of Library West, is an emerging community center for digital scholarship (DS) and digital humanities (DH) at the University of Florida. Open to faculty and graduate students, the Studio aims to support collaborative research and practice, offering the technology necessary for users to make new intellectual contributions in their fields.

In Fall 2016, Library West’s new Digital Scholarship Associate, Diana Dombrowski, will host Open Lab Hours in the space: ten walk-in hours per week during which faculty, staff and graduate students are welcome to stop in and learn about Studio resources for DH/DS projects. During lab hours, she will be available to talk and consult about resources for project development, presentation or training, etc., with the goal of opening up the Studio for increased DH/DS use.

The Nygren Studio spascolars-studio-2ce offers a 90’’ LED screen and a 70’’ LED touchscreen for digital presentations, connection to AirMedia for the option to present wirelessly, four computers outfitted with a suite of DH/DS software for project work, and a set of wireless microphones for audio conferencing. The Studio seating and table arrangements are also flexible and easy to move to encourage group discussion and collaboration.
