Elsevier has extended its co-operation with Leiden University Libraries’ Centre for Digital scholarship and the Scaliger Institute for two more years on a fellowship programme to support the study of digital collections.
Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, and Leiden University Libraries (UBL) have extended the fellowship programme in Digital Scholarship for two years. This programme enables scholars to study the digital collections at Leiden University Libraries and enables co-operation with the innovative Centre for Digital Scholarship (CDS) at Leiden University.
