Open scholarship is an umbrella term for emerging practices within the academic community—open access, open data, open educational resources—aimed at expanding the availability of scholarly output by reducing barriers to the access, sharing and use of research.

Digital Commons

The Hamilton Digital Commons is an open archive for scholarly and creative works by Hamilton College faculty, students and staff. The first work was added to the Hamilton Digital Commons in November 2016.

Digital Humanities Initiative

The Digital Humanities initiative (DHi) 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. DHi creates opportunities for new interdisciplinary models and methods of collaboration between faculty and students.

Hamilton College Digital Collection

The library's growing collection of primary and secondary source materials relating to American communal societies, the Lesser Antilles, Ezra Pound, jazz, Hamilton College and more are available online.

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.

Open Educational Resources

Open educational resources are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them.

Help us provide an accessible education, offer innovative resources and programs, and foster intellectual exploration.
