Digital Scholarship and Digital Humanities: Home

This guide provides an overview of resources related to digital scholarship and the digital humanities for research and teaching.

What is digital scholarship/humanities?

Digital humanities are “a nexus of fields within which scholars use computing technologies to investigate the kinds of questions that are traditional to the humanities, or . . . ask traditional kinds of humanities-oriented questions about computing technologies." (Link)
—Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Director of Digital Humanities and Professor of English at Michigan State University


"Digital humanities has offered people the means and opportunity to create new communities. And this type of community building should not be overlooked; it has literally saved lives as far as I’m concerned. People — those who have felt alone or maligned or those who have been marginalized or discriminated against or bullied — have used digital tools to survive and live." (Link)
—Jessica M. Johnson, Assistant Professor of Africana Studies and History at Johns Hopkins University


"Digital scholarship is research and teaching that is made possible by digital technologies, or that takes advantage of them to ask and answer questions in new ways." (Link)
— Melanie Schlosser, Scholarly Communications Program Leader at the Library Publishing Coalition
