Digital scholarship presents an affordable and open model for scholarly communication.
Digital media is a credible, professional, and legitimate means of research.
The use of digital collections within the UCT Libraries' Special Collections enhances research, teaching, and learning, specifically in the digital humanities.
DLS endeavour to support digital scholarship by:
providing digitisation and Research Data Management (RDM) services
increasing research output by supporting eResearch
supporting data management and data sharing
educating the research community about digital scholarship
training staff and students to use the infrastructure provided by UCT Libraries
integrating UCT Libraries’ digital tools and systems with regional and national infrastructure.
