2:00-3:30 PM Seminar

As Digital Humanities research grows on campuses throughout the country, librarians are playing ever more integral roles in the Digital Humanities research lifecycle. Building on core strengths of the profession and experience working with faculty across disciplines, librarians contribute concretely to the conception, development, dissemination, preservation, and curation of digital humanities research. These activities often require that librarians collaborate across a diverse range of roles including but not limited to subject liaisons, digital humanities and digital scholarship librarians, metadata librarians, and digital curation librarians.  During this webcast, participants will learn how librarians working in a wide range of roles and institutions are engaging the Digital Humanities research lifecycle.

The presenters will discuss case studies based on first-hand experiences in the context of the latest research literature to explain how they meet Digital Humanities research needs. Presenters will discuss challenges and solutions to dealing with a wide array of data formats, tools, methods, and digital platforms utilized in Digital Humanities research.  By focusing discussion on real world challenges and solutions, this webcast will provide participants with strategies that can be cross-purposed to other institutional contexts.”
