美国伊利诺伊州的Northwestern University 的Laura Nelson(Assistant Professor of Sociology)在2020 年秋天学期发布了Analyzing Complex Digitized Data的课程:

“This course is NOT a computer science course. It is not even a course on computer programming. No prior programming experience is required or assumed. It is primarily a social science and humanities course, with an eye toward digital technologies. We will not have computers analyze data or cultural material for us. Instead, we will harness the superior ability for computers to count and extract patterns from complex data and cultural material, and use this output to enhance our own critical thinking and interpretive analyses.”

加拿大安大略省Southern Methodist University英文系助理教授Emma Annette Wilson在2020年出版了Digital Humanities For Librarians (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers; Illustrated edition, January 15, 2020),综述了数字人文对于图书馆员的应用,覆盖了多种技术,进行了理论层面的探讨,也提供了方法上的指导与帮助。https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781538116463/Digital-Humanities-for-Librarians

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Dr. Emma Annette Wilson holds a BA and M.Phil. in English from the University of Cambridge, a Ph.D. in Renaissance literature and logic from the University of St. Andrews, and an MLIS from the University of Western Ontario. As Digital Scholarship Librarian, by engaging in extensive outreach, consultation, and project management, she grew the Digital Humanities Center at the University of Alabama Libraries from having 5 to over 140 projects, as well as establishing an annual Digital Humanities conference, Digitorium, which attracted delegates from all over the world, a number of whom contribute to the digital component of this textbook. Dr. Wilson used her experience to write Digital Humanities For Librarians to help and to inspire others in the field to kick-start and accelerate sustainable digital humanities programs at their own institutions. She currently works as Assistant Professor at Southern Methodist University.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Some librarians are born to digital humanities; some aspire to digital humanities; and some have digital humanities thrust upon them. Digital Humanities For Librarians is a one-stop resource for librarians and LIS students working in this growing new area of academic librarianship. The book begins by introducing digital humanities, addressing key questions such as, “What is it?”, “Who does it?”, “How do they do it?”, “Why do they do it?”, and “How can I do it?”. This broad overview is followed by a series of practical chapters answering those questions with step-by-step approaches to both the digital and the human elements of digital humanities librarianship. 


Digital Humanities For Librarians covers a wide range of technologies currently used in the field, from creating digital exhibits, archives, and databases, to digital mapping, text encoding, and computational text analysis (big data for the humanities). However, the book never loses sight of the all-important human component to digital humanities work, and culminates in a series of chapters on management and personnel strategies in this area. These chapters walk readers through approaches to project management, effective collaboration, outreach, the reference interview for digital humanities, sustainability, and data management, making this a valuable resource for administrators as well as librarians directly involved in digital humanities work. 

There is also a consideration of budgeting questions, including strategies for supporting digital humanities work on a shoestring. 

Special features include:

Case studies of a wide range of projects and management issues

Digital instructional documents guiding readers through specific digital technologies and techniques

An accompanying website featuring digital humanities tools and resources and digital interviews with librarians and scholars leading the way in digital humanities work across North America, from a range of larger and smaller institutions

Whether you are a librarian primarily working in digital humanities for the first time, a student hoping to do so, or a librarian in a cognate area newly-charged with these responsibilities, Digital Humanities For Librarians will be with you every step of the way, drawing on the author’s experiences and those of a network of librarians and scholars to give you the practical support and guidance needed to bring your digital humanities initiatives to life.
