Digital Seed Grants 2022-2023 Awarded

Over summer 2022, the Digital Seed Grant Committee received applications for its sixth year of awarding Digital Seed Grants. The proposals received were of high quality despite the impact of Covid-19, and Walker Library is committed to keeping the library’s charge of accelerating teaching and research with digital technologies and methodologies. One way the library does this is by funding seed grants.

The Digital Seed Grant Committee was exited to receive 7 applications from a diverse background of projects and disciplines and commends all the applicants on their proposed research or teaching projects. We are pleased to announce the 2022-2023 winners in no particular order:
