What is Digital Humanities?
  • Digital humanities is a diverse and still
    emerging field that encompasses the practice of
    humanities research in and through information
    technology, and the exploration of how the
    humanities may evolve through their engagement
    with technology, media, and computational
    methods.

Digital Library Projects
  • American Verse Project
  • Early American Fiction
  • Documenting the American South
  • The Public Papers of the Presidents of the United
    States
  • Others far too numerous to mention

16
The Challenge
  • Local horizons of meaning and function
  • Standards use is inward-looking
  • Habits of scholarship are local rather than global
