Scholarly Commons offers reference collection in support of digital scholarship

The Scholarly Commons reference collection contains resources about a wide variety of topics in digital scholarship. Our collection is small enough for browsing by new learners and broad enough in scope to offer useful resources to researchers who need to brush up on various software packages.


Our collection contains books on the following topics, as well as many more:

  • Data visualization
  • GIS
  • Author Rights and Open Access
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • User experience and Usability Testing
  • SPSS
  • R
  • Photoshop
  • Bibliometrics
  • Data Mining

Our workstations are loaded with many of the software packages covered by our reference collection so that you can read up on software right as you are using it. We also have several comfortable reading chairs where you can study our books. Though reference collection items can’t be checked out, we have scanners on hand if you need to copy a few pages.

Come check out our reference collection for yourself in room 306 of the Main Library. We are open from 10 to 6, Monday through Friday.
