At the University of Virginia Library Scholars’ Lab, advanced students and researchers across the disciplines partner on digital projects and benefit from expert consultation and teaching. Our highly-trained faculty and staff focus on the digital humanities, geospatial information, 3D data collection, and scholarly making at the intersection of the digital and physical worlds.

Project Incubation

We develop open source software and open access content, in collaboration with UVa faculty and grads, and fellow librarians. We're committed to collaborative work, publicly shared.

Graduate Training

We support emerging scholar-practitioners through Graduate Fellowships in Digital Humanities and UVa Library's innovative Praxis Program.
