Digital Humanities Talk

Today I was able to attend a talk on the digital humanities by Brett Bobley, the Director of the Digital Humanities at the National Endowment for the Humanities. He spoke a lot about different digital projects the NEH is working on, and seemed particularly excited about newspaper digitization projects that are popping up all over the country. He described the different initiatives that are funded by NEH grants, and discussed a lot of what other libraries are doing out there. It was very exciting to know that the NCDHC is right out there on the front lines with advancing digital content available on the web. As I’ve learned through my work, it’s clear that there are still trends and workflows being hammered out. We are constantly trying to figure out the best ways to tackle this project, and it’s nice to know that there are others struggling with the same issues.
