Digital Studio for Public Arts & Humanities
The Digital Studio for Public Arts & Humanities—“The Studio” for short—is a campus-wide initiative that encourages and supports public digital humanities research, scholarship and learning by faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students, including those involved in “Public Humanities in a Digital World,” one of the interdisciplinary faculty clusters established by the UI Cluster Hire Initiative.
The Fluxus Digital Collection is made possible by the PHDW, whose initiative is at the intersection of the public humanities, digital humanities, and public engagement—all areas in which UI faculty are performing innovative teaching, scholarship, and service. Its focus is the impact of academic work on civic life and society, using the opportunities provided by digital technologies to amplify and distribute broadly what faculty do as teachers and scholars, collaborating with communities on projects that have social and artistic impact, and envisioning new ways of interacting with our many publics.
Special Collections & University Archives
Special Collections contains over 200,000 rare books ranging in age from the 15th century to newly created artists' books; over 800 manuscript collections, medieval to modern; and 7,000 feet of records that document the University’s history. The Libraries' repository of primary source materials includes exceptional literary collections of writers from Walt Whitman to Iris Murdoch; historical collections document the French Revolution, Westward Expansion, the Civil War, Chautauqua and vaudeville performers, the culinary arts, political cartooning, screenwriting, and more. Our holdings also include tens of thousands of pamphlets, photographs, posters, sound recordings, and other formats.
Digital Research & Publishing
Digital Research & Publishing explores ways that academic libraries can best leverage digital collections, resources, and expertise to support faculty and student scholars by: (1) Collaborating on interdisciplinary scholarship built upon digital collections; (2) Offering publishing services to support sustainable scholarly communication; (3) Engaging the community through participatory digital initiatives; (4) Promoting widespread use and reuse of locally built repositories and archives; (5) Advancing new technologies that support digital research and publishing.
The works contained in the Fluxus Digital Collection belong to UI Special Collections and were donated by artist and benefactor Ken Friedman. All materials published to the FDC are made with Ken Friedman's permission. We thank him for his enthusiastic support and generosity.
The Fluxus Digital Collection receives critical support from the Digital Studio for the Public Arts & Humanities and the University of Iowa Libraries. We also welcome and rely upon donations from the community to maintain, improve, and expand the site and its holdings. If you would like to donate, please contact Stephen Voyce.
