Currently, there are two groups of students working on digital scholarship projects: Digital Humanities Associates (DHAs) and Digital Scholarship Interns (DSIs). Both programs are based in Gould Library.
The DHAs and DSIs are funded jointly by the Humanities Center, Library, and ITS, and are supervised by Reference & Instructional Librarian for Digital Scholarship Sarah Calhoun, Assistant Director of the Humanities Center for Digital Humanities Austin Mason, and Wiebke Kuhn, Director of Academic Technology, ITS.
DSIs are also sponsored by the Career Center, and participate in training and activities with other Interns on campus.
Digital Humanities Associates (DHAs)
The Digital Humanities Associates (DHAs) are a group of responsible, engaged undergraduate students who support digital humanities projects and courses throughout the academic year. DHAs engage in a wide array of projects, collaborating closely with faculty who conduct arts and humanities research and who teach using digital methods and tools.
- In some cases, they function as Research Assistants for digital humanities projects, consulting on every stage of the process from initial design to data entry, development and final deployment.
- The DHAs also serve as embedded Teaching Assistants in humanities courses, offering hands-on assistance for digital class projects and holding “tech help” evening office hours when students are up working but most faculty have left campus for the night.

Digital Scholarship Interns (DSIs)
The Digital Scholarship Interns (DSIs) are a group of four undergraduate students who work collaboratively on meaningful individual and group tasks that contribute to digital scholarship work being done across campus. They utilize and enhance their skills in such areas as web development, accessibility and inclusive design, digital ethics and privacy, as well as project management methods and technologies.
