New From LIBER: “A Digital Humanities Reading List: Part One (Policies and Profiles)”

New From LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries):

LIBER’s Digital Humanities & Digital Cultural Heritage Working Group is gathering literature for libraries with an interest in digital humanities. Four teams, each with a specific focus, have assembled a list of must-read papers, articles and reports.

The recommendations in this article (the first in the series) have been assembled by the team in charge of Recommendations for identifying and establishing policies and profiles regarding digital humanities’ portfolios, led by Demmy Verbeke of KU Leuven.

When a particular topic gains traction in academic theory and practice, literature on the matter soon follows suit. No wonder then that, in recent years, we have seen the appearance of numerous scholarly articles about Digital Humanities (DH), as well as companions, handbooks, readers and journals devoted to the topic. What is more, DH practitioners typically embrace alternative forms of scholarly communication, resulting in a steady stream of blog posts and publications on collaborative platforms like GitHub or the Open Science Framework.

In this post, we want to highlight a few choice examples of this literature, which we found particularly informative when contemplating why DH deserves the attention of research libraries in the first place and the various ways in which it can be integrated in the day-to-day practices of these institutions.
