Journal Title:

Volume 53, Number 1


, Pages 67-78

Type of Work:

Article | Post-print: After Peer Review


Based on Micah Vandegrift’s article What is digital humanities and what’s it doing in the library? and Stewart Varner’s response to that piece, this article offers an overview of the foundational ideals where libraries and digital humanities overlap. The authors lay out practical ways for libraries to involve themselves in this evolving area, especially focused on current strengths of many libraries including commitments to resource accessibility and project development. Finally, this article proposes that the role of the research librarian is evolving in order to effectively integrate the library as a partner in the scholarship of digital humanities.
