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 are doing this by establishing teams, which are focused on various aspects of the knowledge network. The teams, and their topics, are as follows:
- Team 1 – Enhancement of skills in the field of digital humanities for librarians. Team Leader: Caleb Derven (University of Limerick, Eire).
- Team 2 – Cooperation and relationship between libraries and research communities. Team leader: Liam O’Dwyer (Dublin City University, Eire).
- Team 3 – Roles of libraries in digital humanities and awareness raising in academic libraries. Team leader: Kirsty Lingstadt (University of Edinburgh, Scotland).
- Team 4 – Recommendations for identifying and establishing policies and profiles regarding digital humanities’ portfolios. Team Leader: Demmy Verbeke (KU Leuven, Belgium).
