Digital Scholarship Fellows

Job Description

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.

Areas of Engagement

  • Digital scholarship support: Fellows will assist students and faculty working on digital scholarship projects, providing advice and direction on the creation and implementation of digital projects, and also supporting technical needs as they arise. Fellows will also have office hours based on their schedules.
  • Outreach and reflection: Fellows will write two reflections on topics related to digital scholarship. Fellows will also collaborate with other digital scholars as opportunities arise, such as conferences, presentations, and group trips to other institutions.
  • Research: Fellows will work on a digital scholarship project. This project may be a project of their own selection, or one selected by library staff.

Qualifications

  • Interest in digital scholarship as a mode of creative teaching and learning
  • Commitment to provide support to students and faculty working on digital scholarship projects.
  • Desire to engage with the digital scholarship community of practice at Gettysburg College and beyond
  • Willingness to develop a digital scholarship project

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.
