Digital humanities is transforming the study of history, literature, social sciences, and more by applying geographic information system (GIS) mapping, data visualizations, text mining, and other innovative tools. And, according to a recent Library Journal survey (conducted in partnership with Gale), academic libraries play a powerful role in advancing digital humanities at their institutions. But how, and what is the value to researchers?
Here are some findings that may surprise you:
- History leads the pack. 62% of history departments engage with digital humanities.
- 69% of librarians surveyed are involved with digital humanities initiatives.
- 99% of librarians surveyed believe libraries should support digital humanities.
View this webinar recording to hear key survey findings, including: how digital humanities is changing research at academic institutions, the library’s role in driving their use, how collaborations can empower your campus’s use of digital humanities, and how you can overcome barriers to use digital humanities more effectively on your campus.
Led by experts, this session will unveil key new insights and spark ideas to enrich humanities research on your campus with innovative digital content and tools.
