The Advances in Library and Information Science (ALIS) Book Series aims to expand the body of library science literature by covering a wide range of topics affecting the profession and field at large. The series also seeks to provide readers with an essential resource for uncovering the latest research in library and information science management, development, and technologies.

 

Introduction

The Digital Humanities is an area of research, teaching, and creation concerned with the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities. Digital humanities embrace a variety of topics, from curating online collections to data mining large cultural data sets. Digital humanities (also known as DH) currently incorporates both digitized and born-digital materials and combine the methodologies from traditional humanities disciplines and social sciences with tools provided by computing (such as data visualization, information retrieval, data mining, statistics, text mining) and digital publishing.

 

Objective of the Book

Research in the digital humanities relies on knowledge of data management and on collaboration across a range of disciplines. Libraries and Library Professionals are situated to be both supporters and participants in digital humanities research.

 

This publication will bring together current research in the discipline of digital humanities, focusing on the role of libraries and library staff in the research, creation, and dissemination of the information.

 

Target Audience

The book will be an asset to librarians navigating the beginnings of a digital humanities project as well as a guide for researchers in the DH process exploring potential partnerships with libraries.

 

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Overview of DH and current scholarship

Role of librarians in DH

Role of libraries and research centers in the DH process

Digital methods and modes of knowledge acquisition

Research methodology

Current pedagogy

Role of libraries in supporting the DH instructor

Future directions in the discipline
