UVic Libraries

Digital Scholarship Commons

We assist UVic students, faculty, and staff in learning digital tools and methodologies to help them pursue their passions and tell their research stories in engaging ways, in a welcoming, equitable, and diverse environment. We do this by offering workshops and one-on-one consultations for various software, tools (such as 3D printers, laser cutters, electronics), and more.


We schedule workshops all year and are currently holding most of them online. Checkout our workshop schedule. Also feel free to work through any of our lesson plans on your own at your own pace.
