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, and scholarly making and building 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.

See some of our R&D projects.

Graduate Training

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

Experimental Humanities

Desktop fabrication, physical computing, and augmented reality: we cultivate spaces for tinkering, experimentation, and scholarly engagement with new technologies.

Geospatial Scholarship

We specialize in spatial analysis across the disciplines, providing University-wide training, classroom and software support, and consultation on GIS and the creation and use of maps.
