About the Scholars’ Lab

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

The SLab hosts events (like workshops and a popular lecture series), and helps to train and mentor the next generation of digital humanities scholar-practitioners through our Graduate Fellowships in Digital Humanities and innovative Praxis Program. We are a founding member of centerNet, a worldwide alliance of digital humanities centers, and of the international Praxis Network, which takes its name from our fellowship program here at UVa.
