You may have heard the buzz about Digital Humanities--but--what is it? What counts as 'digital humanities'? How do you approach digital projects while not overextending resources? Who can do 'digital humanities' work? How do you get started? This session will broadly define digital humanities and scholarship and how the methods can be applied in a variety of communities. Highlighting how to get started working on basic DH projects using free or low-cost tools and technologies,this session will offer project ideas that can be applied across different types of libraries and/or museums. Come learn how you can capture stories, map experiences or explore local histories in your community. Digital humanities projects have the potential to forge new partnerships, broaden the definition of scholarship to be inclusive of average citizens, and to improve overall digital literacy.
