The Musselman Library Digital Scholarship Committee invites Gettysburg College students interested in digital scholarship/digital humanities research to submit applications to become a Digital Scholarship Fellow. A Digital Scholarship Fellow is a student who works alongside librarians and educational technologists to support students and faculty engaged in digital scholarship projects, and who is also interested in developing an independent digital project of their own. Priority will be given to students who have successfully completed the requirements of the Digital Scholarship Summer Fellowship.
The Digital Scholarship Fellowship is intended to serve as a community of practice, with the cohort of Fellows supporting the work of each other and developing creative solutions to common problems related to digital scholarship activity. Fellows may be asked to work with library student workers, Peer Research Mentors, interns, and librarians in order to share their knowledge, improve their skills, and learn from the work of others.
Digital Scholarship Fellows will work 4-6 hours per week while classes are in session. In addition, Fellows will attend a monthly 30-minute check-in meeting. Fellows may be asked to attend classes to act as mentors/trainers for digital scholarship projects, or meet with students and faculty to provide individual consultations. The rate of pay is $8.50 per hour.
All positions are filled and we are not accepting applications at this time. If you would like to know more about the Digital Scholarship Fellows program, please email the Digital Scholarship Committee.
