An Introduction to the Digital Humanities for Librarians

Thursday, May 15, 2014 - 1:00pm

 

In recent years, the term "digital humanities" has been used to describe modes of research, collaboration, and teaching that apply or analyze computational, digital, and networked tools in humanities contexts. The collaborative, project-focused, and technologically-oriented nature of the field means that information professionals often work alongside scholar-researchers and students.

Academic, special, and public libraries and librarians have played important roles in the development of "dh." This webinar will provide an introduction to the digital humanities using examples of recent projects, and focus on how librarians can contribute to or support the digital humanities through, for example, maker spaces, digital labs and learning environments, or as managers of data and providers of digital resources.
