Digital technologies are having a profound impact on humanities research methods and products. The “humanities computing” field of the 1990s has grown into the current “digital humanities,” but these methods are still evolving quickly in 2013. This presentation will provide an introduction to digital humanities terminology and concepts, discuss how both the academy and libraries are engaging with digital humanities practices, and introduce some digital humanities tools and resources for learning more and participating in the digital humanities community.
