Digital Scholarship

Work With Us

As of March 2021, we changed our services to focus on our current project collaborations. Until further notice, we have decided to temporarily hold off from beginning new project collaborations. This includes platform set-up, metadata and technical support, and server hosting.

For new requests, we offer an initial consultation meeting. We would be excited to hear more about your project, and provide our suggestions for:

  • Platforms to host your project
  • Plug-ins and tools to implement
  • Workflows
  • Project structure
  • Metadata and cataloging practices

For any questions, contact us at If you would be interested in a consultation, please share more with us about your project on our Project Request Form. We look forward to working with you!


  • Digital databases on JSTOR Forum, built to archive a wide range of materials such as photographs, audio, video, and documents
  • Web exhibitions on Omeka, created to feature items from JSTOR Forum collections

At the moment, we focus on two platforms: JSTOR Forum and Omeka. If you are interested in working with other digital tools, please contact us. We are glad to discuss additional ways DSS can support your project, or refer you to other resources.

  • Consultation (e.g., building metadata structures for JSTOR Forum, brainstorming web exhibitions for Omeka)
  • Project set-up (e.g., creating project site on JSTOR Forum, setting up Omeka website on our server)
  • User access (e.g., registering new users for JSTOR Forum and Artstor, adding users to Omeka, troubleshooting login errors)
  • Content maintenance (e.g., formatting text on Omeka webpage, batch uploading media to JSTOR Forum)
  • If applicable, funding application collaboration (e.g., drafting language that describes our services, providing budget estimates)
  • Group or individual training for Omeka
  • Equipment rentals
  • Course-based student projects
  • Programming
  • Animation

Timelines for past projects we have supported range widely and depend on many factors. Because of this, we do not provide estimates. Instead, we work closely with all project leads to determine a specific project timeline together.

On our Project Request Form, let us know your projected completion date. We will work with you to find a timeline that fits your project goals best.

We are glad to offer administrative support at any time following the project's completion, such as registering new users and troubleshooting server issues.

However, for design changes and content updates to past projects, please send us a new request through our Project Request Form and indicate the type of change on the form. Similar to onboarding a new project, we will review your goals and our calendar, and be in touch with next steps.
