Welcome to #DSMEET19!


We here at Lafayette College and the Lafayette College Libraries are very happy to have you here on our campus on June 28th for the 2019 Digital Scholarship Student Symposium!

Digital scholarship programs and projects from students from Bryn Mawr, Bucknell, Gettysburg, Haverford, Lafayette, Muhlenberg, and Swarthmore will be featured in a couple of informal poster sessions that are designed to be “meet and greet” opportunities rather than formal presentations.
