Copyright & Digital Scholarship Center (CDSC)

The CDSC provides expertise and advises the Libraries and the NC State community on the methods and modes of scholarly communication, copyright, open knowledge, and digital scholarship. The CDSC is the central hub of digital scholarship support and assists with creating, sharing, accessing, and preserving new forms of scholarly and academic activities that are enhanced through the use of digital technology and open practice.

We offer workshops, training, and one-on-one consultations on topics like: digital humanities project development, digital and open pedagogy, copyright, author's rights, publishing and scholarly sharing, innovative research tools, and establishing a scholarly identity online.
