Registrations now open for Digital Humanities Satellite Berlin August 2017

IFLA Satellite Meeting 2017 in Berlin on August 15 – 17

Hosted by BBAW, DARIAH-EU, DINI, IFLA, LIBER and the Library of the Humboldt University Berlin

Digital Humanities is widely understood to mean the use of computer-aided and data-driven research methods and techniques in both the arts and humanities. Some examples of this are critical editions, lexicographical projects, as well as the historical reception of large-scale collections, whether of visual objects or literary textual corpora. But intrinsic to the digitally-enabled arts and humanities are the holdings and collections offered up to researchers by libraries and other cultural heritage and memory institutions. In addition academic libraries also have an integrating role to play between the researcher, the interested public and the collections not only of libraries, but also of museums and archives especially, where strong regional cooperation or collaborations across borders have been established. Essential to this for this role are services that present appropriately curated digitized materials and provide access to them.
