The Aurelius Digital Scholarship Initiative is a project of Falvey Memorial Library to support digital humanities (DH) projects and digital scholarship more broadly at Villanova University.

Aurelius was the family name of St. Augustine and we chose to name our program after him to reflect the Augustinian heritage of our community at Villanova.

What is "digital scholarship"?

It's hard to come up with one definition since there are so many things involved, but basically it comes down to the intersections between technology and scholarship, in all their varied forms. As we grow our own community, we'll get a feel for what that means within our own setting. What do you want from a digital scholarship program? Be part of the dialogue!

Who are we?

Right now, the two main contacts for this initiative are Laura Bang, Digital Scholarship Coordinator, and David Uspal, Digital Scholarship Technology Developer. We're also helped by some other great library staff from various departments. If you have questions, please direct them to
