The Digital Scholarship Office provides consultations on individual research projects ranging from the exploratory/conceptual to the final stage and the use of digital tools/methods, and special collections to facilitate, reinvigorate, and transform research and teaching. Staff also train on specific digital tools used in research and analysis, methods for applied-use of digital special collection assets, and the introduction of digital tools and content into curricula. This website contains links to projects, resources, workshops, events, funding opportunities, and contact information.
As part of multiple collaborations with faculty at UT-Austin and beyond, we are transcribing and translating documents in our collections to incorporate underrepresented perspectives more meaningfully into World and Latin American studies curriculum. This website utilizes FromThePage software to help the community transcribe text from many different Benson collections and still contains not transcribed or partially transcribed documents.
The Texas Data Repository preserves and provides access to data sets, transcriptions, and other data products derived from collection materials at the Benson Latin American Collection, and created by LLILAS faculty, staff, and students.
Texas ScholarWorks, Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies
Texas ScholarWorks was established to provide open, online access to the products of the University's research and scholarship, to preserve these works for future generations, to promote new models of scholarly communication, and to help deepen community understanding of the value of higher education. Founded in 1940, The Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies (LLILAS) is a language and National Resource Center integrating more than 30 academic departments at UT and offering programs that lead to B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees. Here you will find collections that contain proceedings from LLILAS-sponsored conferences, the Institute's annual publication Portal, as well as a number of occasional paper series containing documents authored by LLILAS-affiliated professors, visiting researchers, and research centers.
