Digital Humanities in the Library, Second Edition

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

The field of digital humanities—and the way in which libraries and library workers support and engage with it—continues to expand and evolve with technological innovations and global and national events that have had a large-scale impact on the world. There are productive new ways to interrogate and expand the meaning of digital humanities and the contributions of subject specialists, digital scholarship center directors, user experience experts, special collections librarians, and technical specialists.
This revised and expanded edition of 2015’s Digital Humanities in the Library includes key reprints from the first edition and new chapters that explore digital humanities and diversity, inclusion, and equity; issues of labor, precarity, and infrastructure; scholarly communication and taxonomies of credit; long-term sustainability; and library digital humanities in the age of institutional austerity.
Divided into sections on theory and practice, chapter authors work in a variety of institution types in many different roles and offer ideas and strategies for cross-institutional collaborations and new approaches to the digital humanities work being done. As Paige Morgan says in the Foreword, “Any digital humanist who can enthuse about data can also tell you that computers alone cannot do the work—you need the thoughtfulness of a human expert to find the way forward. This collection can help us do that.”
