Editor's Notes

  • Distinctive feature of DH – process is as important (or more) than product

    “Humanities computing”
    Text encoding
    Scholarly editions
    Text mining
    Computational linguistics
    Scholar-driven


    Expansive, inclusive, interactive
    Digital collections
    Online reference works
    Spatial & temporal visualizations
    Collaborative: library connections
  • And then think about how scholarship is changing
  • Joyce/NCSU study
  • Within the library
    To scholars themselves
  • Disciplinary repositories rather than institutional repositories
    Cloud, consortial storage
    “Centers of excellence”
