Florida State University Libraries is proud to announce the launch of CreateFSU, a new web-hosting service for digital research projects. With CreateFSU, faculty, staff and students have the ability to host and publish websites related to their digital research and pedagogy projects using cutting-edge and industry-standard web publishing tools. Created to supplement FSU’s existing web hosting services for faculty, students and departments, CreateFSU provides researchers and instructors with the ability to build a digital presence for projects spanning from interactive maps and visualizations, to collaborative course blogs, to digital museum exhibits.
CreateFSU provides each user with a unique domain name and gives them access to a dashboard with several different applications, including Wordpress, MediaWiki, Scalar, Omeka (digital library) and Drupal. Once installed, these applications give users the freedom to create blogs, publish video, author books and share research data.
In addition, we are also excited to announce the revival of the Project Enhancement Network & Incubator (“PEN & Inc”) digital project incubator program for the 2021-2022 academic year. This program provides limited funding for new digitally-inflected projects and an active-participant incubator/mentorship program to assist projects in their development. Incubator participants will have access to dedicated training and support from the Office of Digital Research and Scholarship as well as the ability to develop and disseminate their projects on the new CreateFSU platform. Finalized details for the 2021-2022 cohort and a formal CFP are available here.
For more details about CreateFSU’s scope, services, and suite of digital tools, please visit the CreateFSU website or contact the FSU Libraries Office of Digital Research and Scholarship at firstname.lastname@example.org.
