From Wonder to Action: the Journey of Digital Scholarship

#BUDSC19 is committed to expanding the definition of digital scholarship to be more inclusive across diverse communities, both inside and outside of academia. The conference will bring together a broad community of practitioners–faculty, researchers, librarians, artists, educational technologists, students, administrators, and others–engaged in digital scholarship both in research and teaching who share an interest in the journey of digital scholarship. We look forward to building on the success of the last five years, in which we came together to discuss challenges, share working models, reflect on projects, and inspire new avenues for actively including students in scholarly pursuits.


Join us to discuss the Journey of Digital Scholarship, where wonder leads to action.

Why should I attend #BUDSC19?

I had an excellent time! This was my first time attending and it was a very enriching experience. Everything I learned and saw at the conference will influence the way I think about my own digital scholarship projects.

It’s consistently good, and we can consistently see how faculty and staff are engaging with their students. It is a generous, collegial, and conversational conference in which we truly share ideas.

Travel Options


For driving directions and information on nearby bus and train stations, airport shuttles and rental cars, please refer to Bucknell University’s directions to Bucknell webpage.


If you are flying in for the conference, there are four airports in the area. Williamsport is about 30 minutes from Lewisburg but has fewer flights. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Harrisburg and State College airports are one hour away from Lewisburg but have a larger selection of flights. It’s worth comparing prices at the different airports as you can often find very good deals by flying in to one airport and out of another one.

Here are two companies that provide shuttle service between Bucknell and local airports:
