Here at DIY Ivory Tower our goal is to familiarize graduate students with the vast and ever expanding array of tools and resources available today that can make their learning, research, writing, and teaching more efficient and productive. Too often in academia, especially in the Social Sciences and Humanities, innovation can take a back seat to the tried and tested methods of the past. As the DIY Ivory Tower name suggests, we’re hoping to bring the DIY ethos of innovation, collaboration, and sharing to the graduate student community.
