In the Digital Scholarship Commons, you might participate in a workshop, meet with a colleague to discuss a project, digitize a resource for your research, consult with ULS staff about using a digital or data-intensive tool, or view digital scholarly creations of Pitt faculty and students.

In addition to providing general study and informal meeting spaces, the Digital Scholarship Commons includes several sub-areas with specific functions:

Open Lab @ Hillman

In Spring 2018, the University Library System is partnering with the Center for Teaching and Learning on Open Lab @ Hillman, a collaboration focused on media making and production. This semester, we are offering drop-in consultation hours on 360 degree video.

On each Monday from 5-7pm, come by the computer lab in the Digital Scholarship Commons to play with 360 degree video or to get help with a specific question. You can experiment with Adobe Premiere Pro, Garmin Virb Edit, YouTube 360, Cardboard viewers, and other 360 videos like New York Times Daily 360 during drop-in hours. Reserve a block of time at the Open Lab @ Hillman.

 

 

For full 360 video production training and access to equipment, please register for Open Lab @ Hillman's monthly 360 Production Workshops, held every first Wednesday this spring term.
