How is Digital UIC Different from other UIC Web Hosting options?
Flexibility: Users of Digital UIC have the ability to easily install several open source applications commonly used for Digital Scholarship and Digital Humanities Projects.
Portability: One of the big advantages to Digital UIC is that users have control and ownership over their websites. When users graduate or move to another institution, there are options for migrating content to Reclaim Hosting or other web hosting services.
Support: While Digital UIC cannot offer full service technical support, we can offer one-on-one consultations and in-class instruction on using particular applications. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a consultation or request in-class instruction.
