Lib Lab Fellows

Lib/Lab Fellows Logo

Since 2016, the Lib Lab Fellows program has been an ongoing experiment in library-based learning focused on bringing to bear networked technologies on conventional scholarship. The program is guided by a critical and creative consideration of the tension between "the digital" and “the analog.” Cohorts bring together majors from STEM, Humanities, and Social Sciences to engage theory and practice of digital scholarship through the lens of social justice, ethics, and accessibility through open lab hours and weekly discussion meetings during the fall semester.
