The members of dSHARP offer consultations  on digital tools, projects, and publishing during weekly Open Office & Consulting Hours and by individual appointment. You can also contact us to schedule a consultation.  The core team can sometimes work with students and faculty in collaboration to create things including but not limited to: project plans, websites, digital tools, datasets, and grant proposals. We are happy to help you conceptualize a project, consider its scope, find data and sources, or demonstrate new tools and related projects. We do not, however, provide programming, web development, interface design, or other technical support as services. Each of us have worked on DH projects, with some of them listed below.


Our core team are scholars from a variety of disciplines with active research agendas who have some availability for more in-depth research or pedagogical collaborations with other scholars. Decisions about joining a project team or longer-term research collaborations are based on the resources, skills, and interests all parties, atypically stemming for project consultations. if you are interested in collaborating with a team member please contact them or come by our Open Office & Consulting sessions on Wednesdays from 12 – 3pm in the Den at the back of the Sorrells Library on the 4th floor of Wean Hall.

Projects awarded Andrew W. Mellon Seed Grants or A.W. Mellon DH Graduate Fellowships can ask for developmental support from our DH Developer, Matt Lincoln.
