Read digitized versions of more than 2.5 million print books held by U of T Libraries while our physical libraries are closed.
We create and use digital methods, theories, and tools and help you incorporate them into your teaching curriculum and research projects.
The Digital Scholarship Unit will help you:
There are many benefits to making your research openly accessible online, including complying with funding requirements like the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy, but it is important to consider your rights as an author and potential uses of your work. We provide information about open access publishing and publications and options for deposit such as TSpace, U of T’s institutional repository.
Learn about copyright basics, author rights, Creative Commons licenses, and more to use the work of others in your teaching and research; you can also negotiate your rights with publishers and increase the reach of impact of your publications. For more assistance with copyright, please contact Yayo Umetsubo, Scholarly Communications and Liaison Librarian
There are many ways to measure the impact of your research, but all of them will help you build your research profile, demonstrate your contributions, and broaden your professional network. Learn more about the tools available to you, or contact Jessica Hanley, Science Liaison Librarian, to book a consultation.
Have you created your free researcher identity yet? Creating one with ORCID-CA has many benefits, from improving the impact of your research and eliminating misattribution to building up your professional network.
Visualizing information and data is a key aspect when presenting research, especially to lay audiences. Learn how to use software like Excel, NVivo, and Tableau, or get started by downloading software remotely. For assistance or online training with these resources, please contact Andrew Nicholson, Coordinator of GIS & Data Services.
We offer a variety of expertise and tools for mapping geospatial data.
