LSA Technology Services (LSA TS) offers one-stop shopping for technical questions. This is the newly rebranded and reorganized unit for all things technological in the college, from classroom support to websites to equipment loan to remote teaching—and everything in between.
If your HistoryLab includes plans for digital scholarship, you may need help determining what platform to use and how to host it. Within LSA TS, the Digital Scholarship Team is the best place to start when planning the digital aspects of your HistoryLab. They understand both the pedagogical, theoretical, and practical aspects of digital scholarship: their team includes a research consultant with a PhD in technology studies and web platform experts with years of experience developing solutions to share research with broader audiences.
The Digital Scholarship Team offers one-on-one consulting and expertise for issues like:
platform hosting (e.g., Omeka, Wordpress, ArcGIS, etc.)
digital research and publishing considerations
digital scholarship community of practice (office hours, events, workshops, etc.).
They also actively work with other campus partners (e.g., U-M Library, Shapiro Design Lab, ITS, Humanities Collaboratory, Duderstadt Center, etc.). Contact LSA TS at LSATechnologyServices@umich.edu.
