The mission of dSHARP is to promote innovative digital research at Carnegie Mellon University via three routes:

  • Connect scholars to collaborators and resources across the university, city, and region.
  • Research using digital methods to ask original questions relevant to the arts, humanities, and sciences.
  • Educate the CMU community about digital tools and research methods.

As advocates for and front-runners of digital scholarship at CMU, our work will be guided by our commitments to:

  • Equitable collaboration: we respect the rights of all collaborators to recognition and appropriate compensation for their work.
  • Digital accessibility: we strive to eliminate barriers to digital scholarship by creating an environment welcoming to a diverse community of practitioners and eliminating barriers to accessing the digital products we create, acquire, or maintain.
  • Sustainable research: we value the continued access to and sustainability of digital research processes and outputs.
