ABOUT THE RESOURCE
This hour-long webinar discusses digital humanities, a new way of doing scholarship that produces and uses new digital applications and techniques, and creates new opportunities for collaboration between librarians, researchers and teachers. Realizing these opportunities requires learning new skills, including collaboration, managing collections as data, and developing and maintaining digital materials and research outputs.
In the webinar, Brian Rosenblum, University of Kansas, and Quinn Dombrowski, Stanford University, who are members of the Global Outlook::Digital Humanities (GO::DH) special interest group of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), discuss how GO::DH helps break down barriers to communication and collaboration among researchers and students of the digital arts, humanities and cultural heritage sectors.
They also discuss collaborative opportunities for libraries, including digital humanities-focused workshops for librarians and researchers in EIFL partner countries; the Libraries and DH special interest group in ADHO, and how to become part of the GO::DH network of DH practitioners.
Adam Crymble, Editor of Programming Historian, speaks about this flagship source for learning and teaching digital research methods. Programming Historian publishes open access, novice-friendly, peer-reviewed tutorials that help humanists learn a wide range of digital tools, techniques, and workflows to facilitate research and teaching.
The webinar was jointly organized by EIFL, Global Outlook::Digital Humanities and Programming Historian.
