Apple & Quill

Hamilton College’s Burke Library presents Apple & Quill: Creative Arts at Burke, an innovative series focusing on creative writing, music, and the visual arts. With support from Hamilton's Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi) and Audiovisual Services, this series will be recorded and archived for future teaching and research opportunities.

Couper Phi Beta Kappa Library Lecture Series

This annual lecture honors Hamilton alumnus and trustee Richard “Dick” Couper ’44 for his commitment and contributions to Hamilton College and the Phi Beta Kappa Society, the oldest academic honorary society in America.

Digital Humanities Initiative

The Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi) at Hamilton College is a collaboratory – digital parlance for a research and teaching collaboration – where new media and computing technologies are used to promote humanities-based teaching, research, and scholarship across the liberal arts. Contact Angel Nieves or Janet Simons for more information.

Hamilton Digital Commons

The Hamilton Digital Commons is an open archive for scholarly and creative works by Hamilton College faculty, students and staff.

Information Security

Everyone has a role in protecting the confidential and sensitive information contained in Hamilton’s electronic systems.


The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded Hamilton College $250,000 to support the development and production of online offerings through edX, a non-profit, research-drive organization founded by MIT and Harvard. Hamilton produced four MOOCs. Hamilton participated, in partnership, with Colgate University.

New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium

Established with the support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium facilitates collaboration among its member institutions in fulfilling their educational missions and serving the public good. Through the sharing of expertise and resources, the Consortium enhances options for students, faculty, and staff, while reducing colleges' individual and collective operating and capital costs.

Open Access

Open Access is the free, immediate, online availability of research articles, coupled with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment (SPARC). In recent years, open access has become at topic of conversation at colleges and universities throughout the world. We invite all Hamilton community members to join that conversation through a series of events during the 2017-18 academic year.
