Digital Scholarship Support Group (DSSG)

The DSSG brings together faculty and staff with technical, pedagogical, and subject-specific expertise in a range of areas across disciplinary and divisional borders to create the technical and personnel resources necessary to support digital scholarship. Members are based in a number of campus organizations, including academic departments, research centers, and museums, as well as multiple units within the Harvard Library and Harvard University Information Technology (HUIT).

This network provides a forum where sustained dialogue among the units represented allows for all parties to fully understand one another’s needs and objectives. Additionally, the knowledge base offered by the DSSG facilitates quick, agile analyses of issues related to digital scholarship, while facilitating a “no wrong door” approach to connecting questions and requests with the appropriate support organization or individual, thereby forging the shortest path to exactly the right expertise.
