The Scholars Commons is a University of Texas Libraries pilot initiative introducing new spaces and approaches to research and data lifecycle support at the university.
We hope to support and inspire scholarship through research consultations; a data lab with advanced software; workshops introducing tools for digital scholarship, data analysis, and scholarly communication; spaces for collaboration; and exhibits and events that provide opportunities for scholars to share their research.
We offer information and consultations for copyright issues and authors who have questions about where and how they can share their work, and are interested in learning more about retaining rights to their work.
The PCL Scholars Commons will be hosting a new exhibit entitled Afro-Latinx Resistance and Reclamation: The Arts Across Diaspora on display from April 25 - June 27. This exhibit is curated by master’s student in Women’s and Gender Studies/Information Studies, Gab Alderete-Cruz, and will feature artwork, fiction, scholarly literature, and other artistic works by Afro-Latinx cultural producers.

Fantasy fiction as a genre is a sprawling labyrinth under a big tent. With this display, we attempted to sample the fantasy books we've collected at PCL over many decades. We've represented high and low fantasy; middle grade, young adult, and adult titles; and a variety of magical and fantastical creatures in different worlds and settings. Event Details
