Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Digital Mapping

Our GIS and digital mapping services can assist with analyzing, displaying, storing, and otherwise managing geospatial data.

Data Analytics and Visualization

Our data analytics and visualization services can help with analyzing and visualizing research data in any discipline.

Digital Repository Services

The Digital Repository Service (DRS) is our next-generation secure repository where the Northeastern community can store, access, and share digital materials produced or used in teaching, research and service activities. The DRS currently hosts more than 70,000 files, including faculty research publications, student theses and dissertations, the Boston Boys and Girls Club Photograph collection, and much more.

Digital Scholarship Group

The Digital Scholarship Group offers tools for creating digital projects and publications, including resource support for Omeka, Open Journal Systems, and XML publishing tools. The DSG also provides training to help you get up to speed. For projects that are ready to expand beyond the prototype stage, the DSG can help develop funding proposals, including assistance with data management plans and technical implementation. The DSG seeks to build a community of expertise, knowledgeable best practices, and carefully supported services.

The Digital Scholarship Commons is a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment on level 2 of Snell Library where faculty and doctoral students engaged in research and instruction can consult with experts and colleagues, and share best practices in the use of technology and information resources to support a wide range of research and instructional needs.
