As datasets become an increasingly important research output, the need for effective attribution tools and practices grows, too. Georgetown University Library supports ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID), an organization that can help you manage your professional identity. Sign up for your own unique identifier, and then use it to connect your works across your career. This will also contribute to enabling appropriate data attribution, and ORCID iDs integrate with tools like DataCite and figshare. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Find primary source materials, rare books, archival materials, artwork, and other unique resources in the Booth Family Center for Special Collections. Booth librarians can also help you analyze and interpret primary sources and use them in class assignments or research.
Digital Humanities are covered under the larger umbrella of Digital Scholarship at the Library. Students and faculty interested in a Digital Humanities project should visit this page to get additional information about the Library's support of DH projects, and to get in touch with the Digital Scholarship Librarian for a consultation.
These pages offer the Georgetown community resources for making informed decisions about how and where to publish your research and scholarship to ensure that it will have the greatest possible impact and reach.
