Memory institutions have built up expertise and taken the lead in all aspects of digital humanities, especially the development and implementation of digital methods for the capture, analysis and dissemination of archives and special collections, including manuscripts. In recent years, these initiatives have become embedded into Digital Humanities Initiatives, Centres and Programmes within research libraries, adding value to the existing relationships between libraries and scholarly iniatiatives. These activities have fostered the development of new projects that bring into collaboration the skills and expertise of academics, librarians, and digital humanists, making the Library increasingly a “digital research infrastructure”. This presentation will discuss these developments based on the experience of the Research Programme in Digital Collections at the National Library of Wales, specifically discussing some recent experimentation with new methods for manuscript digitization and dissemination, including hyperspectral digitization of the Library’s Chaucer manuscripts. The presentation will also discuss the wider embedding of this work within the European Digital Humanities Context, through collaborations with the ESF Research Network Programe NeDiMAH (Network for Digital Methods in the Arts and Humanities).
