At various points of the Digital Scholarship process, libraries are involved in this work in ways that are specific to their parent institution. In particular, library collections have been increasingly supporting the advancement and progressive expansion of Digital Scholarship during the last decade. Digital scholars work in academic departments, institutional centers and labs, or independently. In many cases, their work may be with large corpora of digital texts, digital images, audiovisual materials, raw data sets, geospatial data, born-digital materials and other types of digital content curated by libraries: content that is either already part of existing library collections or that is proactively acquired by libraries for specific digital scholarship projects.
