Description

Our panel explores the multiple roles libraries play in digital humanities. Librarians’ capacity to engage critically with the production, consumption, and pedagogy of digital humanities increases our ability to partner with and be valued by our campuses. Whether we see ourselves in a service or a scholar role, we are providing leadership for digital humanities. Our goal is to foster lively discussion about practical and theoretical concerns, and offer conceptual tools.
