Workshops and User Groups

The Library offers regular opportunities to learn about our services and platforms and to collaborate with others around campus.


Our on-demand workshops will introduce you to our Digital Scholarship Services, available technologies, and how they can serve you as faculty and instructors. Some examples include:

  • Introduction to DePaul's Institutional Repository, Via Sapientiae
  • Faculty, Copyright and Author Rights
  • Using visual resources in instruction and research
  • Maker Hub technology
  • Data Cleaning using OpenRefine
  • Creating online exhibits with Omeka
  • Developing a digital publication with Scalar
  • Digital mapping using Neatline
  • Text mining with HathiTrust
  • Web scraping
  • Using ICPSR data in your instruction and research

If you have suggestions for Workshops, contact us with your idea.

We also provide spaces and support for the DePaul community to host their own workshop: Reserve a room.

User Groups

The Library hosts user groups on campus where colleagues from many disciplines share ideas, learn about new developments in digital platforms and make connections.

If you are interested in joining any of these groups, please contact us.

Via User Group

The Via User Group launched in 2015. Each quarter, current administrators of collections, journals, and proceedings using the Digital Commons platform meet to learn about new features and share ideas for the future. Non-administrators are also welcome to attend.
