Beskrivelse

Recent years have seen an increased focus on digital humanities at national libraries, driven by a strategic desire to develop key digital services for university faculty and students, as well as a means to explore the libraries’ vast collections of heritage data. Through their service, libraries often have direct access to scholars and students. Meanwhile, after years of digitization, they now hold large repositories of digital heritage data, ready to be explored. The focus on digital humanities has resulted in a number of developments, ranging from improved access to digital repositories to organizing data sprints at the university libraries. The work has, however, not always been straightforward, as several both organizational, theoretical and technological problems arose in the process. Those issues range from the curation of library materials, to selection biases of the process of digitization. This workshop aims to light a discussion these issues, and several others, that rise in connection to national libraries’ engagement with the digital humanities.
