About the Digital Sandbox

UCI Libraries’ Digital Sandbox Service is a fully hosted platform that researchers can use to explore specialized software applications for digital projects. The Digital Sandbox is ideal for UCI researchers (including faculty, students and staff) who want to:

  • Build and test tools for a short to medium term digital project
  • Decide whether or not certain software is right for their needs
  • Scope out a project that can later be moved on to a permanent hosting solution
  • Collaborate with peers or students

The Digital Sandbox provides access to dozens of fully functional applications including:

  • Wordpress
  • Omeka Classic
  • Omeka S
  • Scalar
  • Mukurtu
  • Pressbooks
  • and more!
