Library Contributes to Humanities in the Digital Age

Posted April 6, 2016

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.
