Digital Humanities – The Role of the Library

Alice Crawford – 16 November, 2015

OVERVIEW

Alice Crawford will discuss what role libraries can play in promoting and supporting the digital humanities, and will consider whether librarians might usefully look to libraries in the US for examples of how they can assist the new digital humanities researcher.  Should we be introducing Digital Humanities Labs to our academic libraries?  What services could they offer and how could the work that goes on in them be financed?  Alice would like to encourage discussion about what our own library here in St Andrews could do to adapt to the diverse and changing needs of researchers in this field.
