Digital Scholarship Center

The Digital Scholarship Center (DSC) evolved from the Dorothy Perkins Slide Library and the Image Collection Library to assist faculty and students in the transition from analog to digital image technologies in the classroom.  While the DSC is a branch of the University Library that serves the entire campus, its primary responsibility is to support the needs of the Department of the History of Art and Architecture.  Brian Shelburne is Head of the DSC and Mike Foldy is Senior Image Cataloging and Processing Assistant.

The DSC provides several systems and collections for using digital images on campus.  Luna Insight is a database and presentation tool that builds upon the collection of images created from the Perkins Slide Library.  In addition to our local collection, Luna users can access 250,000 images licensed through the University Library.  ARTstor is another image database that offers close to one million images made available by organizations and individuals throughout the United States.  For more information on these systems, or on DSC services, please contact Brian Shelburne.
