Digital Humanities

Supporting humanities researchers through the use of digital tools

Digital Humanities involves applying digital tools and techniques to traditional humanities disciplines (e.g. history, literature, philosophy). Interdisciplinary by nature, Digital Humanities is a relatively recent emerging field that aids humanities researchers in further understanding their research topics through the use of digital tools. Text/data mining, digital mapping, network analysis, textual analysis, digital editions, are just a few examples of Digital Humanities methods.  

The Dalhousie Libraries assist with Digital Humanities projects for Dalhousie Researchers and support Digital Humanities projects. Often, this takes the form of consultation and advice, but can vary depending on the nature of the project. Some sample DH projects can be viewed on the Projects page.
