New From LIBER: Digital Humanities Reading List: Part Three (Skill Building)
The recommended readings and tutorials in this post broadly focus on what skills are needed for providing DH services in libraries and how library staff can acquire these skills.
In the case of the former, we examined resources that resonated as representative or evocative of what skills library staff might obtain allowing them to participate in digital humanities work or practices. With the latter, we’ve highlighted a few skills tutorials that provide practical instruction in useful tools and skills for DH practice. Of course, given the sheer plurality of both web-accessible and published resources, this posting highlights a sampling of what’s available. The Working Group’s Zotero library, and items specifically related to skill building within libraries, offers a surfeit of additional starting places.
