The UTSC Library's DSU provides high quality experiential, curricular and co-curricular learning for students at UTSC. We also collaborate with faculty and CTL staff on the creation of assignments in digital scholarship and digital research. Explore this page to learn more about our activities in this area. Instructors, we encourage you to contact your liaison if you are interested in working with the library on digital scholarship related learning outcomes.

Pedagogy Projects

Open Inorganic Chemistry

This open access inorganic Chemistry website is maintained by Chemistry professor Alen Hadzovic. The DSU hosts this virtual textbook and supported him in the integration of Jmol and Flot libraries to create animated molecule visualizations.


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.
