Library faculty Bill Ross and Eleta Exline are just a couple of the dozens of UNH faculty exploring digital humanities projects and potential.
Digital humanities (often abbreviated as DH) looks at traditional disciplines like philosophy, linguistics, language, history, and others, through the lens of computing, digital materials, and other scientific areas. Digital humanities is unique and exciting because it requires more than just thinking outside the box - it requires collaboration and expertise across multiple disciplines.
Collaboration between faculty members working in digital humanities is already taking place. The Digital Scholarship Working Group, co-chaired by Ross and associate professor and scholarly communications coordinator Eleta Exline, began meeting last year. The group is “focused on trying to figure out what the Library’s role might be in providing digital scholarship support,” Exline says.
Support from the Library might take different forms, according to Exline, from connecting faculty to different resources, maintaining digital exhibits and databases, or helping to train the next generation of researchers in the digital humanities.

The UNH Library and its partner, the Earth Systems Research Center of the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space, have been awarded a grant in the amount of $474,156 from the Institute for Museum and Library Services though its National Leadership Grants for Libraries Program. The grant will help fund the building of PLACE, the Position-based Location Archive Coordinate Explorer.
PLACE will be a geospatial search interface, available to the general public through the library website. Access to embedded geospatial information in a flexible visual interface will enable library users to develop important skills such as visual, global and environmental literacy.
The PLACE project will develop:
- new tools not currently available in a geoportal, including a new geospatial gazetteer tool for improved searching
- new time series capabilities to easily assess changes over time
- usability driven interface improvements
By developing code to enable the Open Geoportal to interoperate with Fedora (the software platform used for the library’s digital collections), we will be providing other Fedora libraries with collections containing geospatial or geographic content a mechanism for making those collections searchable in Open Geoportal for the first time. All PLACE modifications to Open Geoportal will be shared with the geoportal community and may be incorporated into future releases of the technology.
The PLACE project will build on the library’s existing digital collections. In the 1990s the UNH Library was a pioneer in scanning historic USGS topographic maps and has continued to develop its digital library capabilities since then.Category: NewsDigital Collections
