Digital Scholarship Services

The mission of the USF Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Services (DSS) is to support the research and teaching activity of the USF community, to promote innovative educational opportunities for students, and to enrich the worldwide research landscape. To fulfill our mission, DSS maintains two repositories: an institutional repository presenting USF’s scholarly publications and a digital repository for primary source collections in video, audio, 3D models, and text. Other DSS services include scholarly communication outreach, open access publishing (including over 20 open access journals), GIS support, copyright and intellectual property questions, data management consultation, digitization, library-wide web services, and the oral history program.
