Overview

Rice University’s Digital Scholarship Services (DSS) partners with faculty, students and staff to advance research, teaching and creative expression in the digital age, offering expertise and access to facilities and tools. We showcase the intellectual vitality of the university by managing the Rice Digital Scholarship Archive; assist in planning and implementing scholarly digital projects; provide training and consulting in the use of digital tools for education and research; provide support for scholarly communications, including consulting on copyright and open access; and help to support using, managing and preserving research data.

Facilities
  • Digital Media Commons (DMC): The Digital Media Commons supports the creation and use of multimedia in education, scholarship, and creative expression. Working toward this end, we provide services that include hands-on training, assistance with digital projects, and access to the essential tools for creating digital resources such as digital video and audio, images and animations, PowerPoint presentations, web pages, and more. Learn more at http://library.rice.edu/dmc
  • Kelley Center for Government Information, Data and Geospatial Services: The Kelley Center for Government Information, Data and Geospatial Services in Rice University's Fondren Library provides free and effective public access to government information, including patents and trademarks, to the Rice community and to the 7th Congressional District of the State of Texas. The Center further assists the research and instructional needs of the Rice faculty and students by providing access to and assistance with the Library's large research collection of microform materials. The Center also provides access to and assistance with maps and a large, uncataloged collection of AEC/Department of Energy documents. The GIS/Data Center assists the Rice community with geographic information systems resources. Learn more at http://library.rice.edu/gov and http://library.rice.edu/gdc.
  • Digital Curation Lab: The Digital Curation Lab is a collaborative workspace for digitization, digital curation, and data management projects. On any given day one might see Preservation staff scanning historical Rice’s theses, oversized charts and maps; Woodson archivists scanning irregular scrapbooks items; and a project team meeting around the collaborative tables. By providing a common space and the tools for digital curation, the DCL promotes interdepartmental and cross-campus collaboration. Learn more at http://library.rice.edu/services/digital-curation-lab
