DS Open Educational Resources

Since 2014, we have been working in partnership with Faculty, Liaison Librarians, iSchool practicum and humanities graduate students to create digital scholarship learning objects for use in the classroom. Topics vary widely, but the resulting objects are designed as introductions to commonly requested topics in digital scholarship.  All modules are collaboratively maintained and licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

Emerging Professionals Program

The UTSC Library plays an important role in student experience, and one of these ways is by providing quality employment and co-op/practicum placements. The Emerging Professionals program seeks to do the following: 

  • Standardize processes for posting, hiring, and evaluating student experience to develop benchmarks and KPIs that will allow these activities to improve in quality over time. 
  • Enable a holistic perspective on these activities, which can be used to inform practice as well as objectively demonstrate the value provided by the library for students.
  • Maximize matching fund opportunities to stretch available funding and make the program more robust. 
  • Create strong professional connections with future information and IT professionals. 

Hogarth in Context

A website is dedicated to William Hogarth (1697-1764), a well-known eighteenth-century painter and engraver. Content for this website is created by students in third and fourth year undergraduate English courses at the University of Toronto Scarborough, beginning in 2015. Students annotate the works of William Hogarth, providing context for his works. Contact Anne Milne  to learn more.
