Digital Humanities Interest Group
The Digital Humanities Interest Group is open to all who are interested in exploring the relationship between digital humanities and libraries. The group aims to: (1) cultivate a community of practice that develops guidance, practitioner resources, and professional dialogues around digital humanities librarianship including information systems work and related roles; (2) identify, encourage, and disseminate approaches to digital humanities service design, research, and pedagogy through sponsored programming, training, and other initiatives that elevate libraries and librarian advocacy for their own research agendas; and (3) build and maintain partnerships with organizations in and outside ALA/ACRL that encourage inter-professional as well as multidisciplinary approaches to the digital humanities.
