Digital Scholarship Services

Data Analysis

Data analysis is the processing and manipulation of data in order to gain additional insight from data, answer a research question, or confirm a research hypothesis.

Data Computing

The Gelardin Center, located on the first floor of Lauinger Library, hosts ISIDORE, the Library's specialized data computer. 

Data Management

Data management is a general concept that encompasses the planning and implementation of numerous activities. It incorporates practices that enable effective data documentation, organization, storage, quality control, access, retrieval, maintenance, security, archiving, preservation, and reuse. Data management planning is important for grant applications and data publishing. 

Data Visualization

Data visualization, often abbreviated Data Viz, is the graphical representation of data. Data visualization is typically employed to either explore data or to explain data.

Design & Presentation

Design and presentation utilizes graphics and presentation applications in order to take text, images, data and other visuals to create persuasive and compelling visual messages. 

Digital Exhibits

Digital Exhibits allow students and faculty to curate exhibits composed of digital and digitized objects around a theme of their choice.


DigitalGeorgetown is Georgetown University's institutional repository and digital collections platform.

Digital Preservation

Digital preservation makes it possible for you to keep your digital resources intact, accessible, and readable for as long as possible, regardless of changes in technology.

Digital Project Planning

Assigning digital projects in lieu of, or in addition to, traditional pen-and-paper assignments, provides students with the opportunity to individualize their learning, work in non-traditional formats, become responsible digital citizens, and develop valuable digital literacies.


Digitization provides remote access to some of Georgetown University's most interesting archival material, rare books, and scholarship. 

Digitization Hub

Our Digitization Hub is a reservable space where you can convert VHS tapes, MiniDV, vinyl records or audio cassettes to a digital format. 

DOI Minting

A DOI is a unique string of letters, numbers, and symbols that identify an article or document and provide it with a permanent URL, which makes it possible to find a registered item even if its owner changes the item’s location.

Geographic Information Systems & Digital Maps

Geographic Information Systems, or GIS, links spatial information and descriptive information. It allows us to understand, share, and make predictions about the world around us. GIS is applicable in any field where there is data with a spatial component.

Immersive Technology

Various new immersive technologies have been developed and adapted to support teaching and learning in many different forms. The more known and prevalent types of these technologies are virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, as well as 3D object and immersive image development.

Institutional Repository Submissions

Faculty and staff are invited to submit their Open Access scholarship to be published on DigitalGeorgetown.

Maker Hub

The Maker Hub promotes innovation and hands-on learning through workshops, curricular engagement, and one-on-one project mentorship.

Multimedia Storytelling

A multimedia story, sometimes called a digital story, is an edited project that contains still images and audio, perhaps sprinkled with some video.


Podcasting is the production of digital audio files posted online for public download. Podcasts are used at Georgetown in a variety of ways, including as a course assignment, as a companion to scholarship, and to give regular updates on the work of a research group or center.

Text Mining

Text mining, sometimes also known as text data mining (TDM), is the process of extracting information from a collection of texts.

Video Production

Video production is the process of creating video content. It comprises three parts: pre-production, production, and post production.

Virtual Reality

VR provides the ability to be in places you aren't or even places that do not exist. This allows the users of this technology to do research, exploration, and even prototyping that might have been otherwise dangerous or impossible.
