Digital Scholarship Certificate

The University of Michigan Library is committed to helping researchers at all levels develop the skills to engage in ethical, sustainable, and responsible digital scholarship. 

To support this work, we’re piloting a certificate program to help graduate students gain digital skills important to educators and researchers. 

Designed to allow graduate students to work and learn as a small cohort, this is an extracurricular, non-credit bearing, certificate for graduate students.

Topics explored 

The program introduces participating students to topics related to digital and data literacy, digital humanities research skills, digital pedagogy, and professional activity in digital environments. 

As with all digital scholarship programming and support provided through the library, this certificate aligns with the principles guiding our work.
