A Guide to Digital Humanities

Northwestern University has an excellent introductory guide to digital humanities, complete with a listing of tools, resources, funding, and evaluation models for digital humanities projects.

This website offers some great information and will be extremely useful for anyone interested in learning more about digital humanities. As future cultural heritage professionals, we fill a special niche in the academic environment, a position that enables us to have both a physical proximity and conceptual familiarity with special collections and objects. As the future of library/archive/museum work will depend on collaboration between information professionals and scholars, the more we know about digital humanities, the more we can promote the active role of our profession in ongoing cultural scholarship.
