The Digital Humanities & Digital Cultural Heritage Working Group is building a knowledge network within European libraries with an interest in digital humanities.
The Working Group’s main activities are to identify and to share the library services for supporting digital humanities, and to establish key prerequisites in order to enable libraries and librarians for the related tasks. We aim to strengthen the position of libraries in the European digital humanities network. Our goal is therefore that LIBER libraries can easily find peers in the library sector, know where to find relevant information on digital humanities, and know how to provide their collections as data and therefore be a true partner in digital humanities research.
We are doing this by establishing teams, which are focused on various aspects of the work around digital scholarship in libraries. The teams, and their topics, are as follows:
- Team 1 – Pro(vi)ding Expertise. Chaired by Caleb Derven (University of Limerick, Eire) and Puck Wildschut (Utrecht University).
- Team 2 – Relationships with the Research Community. Chaired by Liam O’Dwyer (Dublin City University, Eire) and Sarah Ames (National Library of Scotland).
- Team 3 – Impact of Digital Humanities Activities in Libraries. Chaired by Kirsty Lingstadt (University of Edinburgh, Scotland) and Merisa Martinez (KU Leuven, Belgium).
- Team 4 – Digital Collections. Chaired by Marian Lefferts (CERL) and Lotte Wilms (KB, Netherlands).
