dh+lib is a website that was formed out of the Association of College & Research Libraries Digital Humanities Discussion Group. Its goal is to “provide a communal space where librarians, archivists, LIS [Library and Information Science] graduate students, and information specialists of all stripes can contribute to a conversation about digital humanities and libraries.”

Digital Toy Chest for Humanists / Alan Liu


The Digital Toy Chest for Humanists is a resource that is kept by Alan Liu for his “Literature+” digital humanities courses. It collects online or software that humanities students (and others) can use to make creative digital projects without only basic computer and Internet skills. The project only lists tools/toys that are free or that can use on a free trial basis.

The site has now been superseded by the DH Toychest: Digital Humanities Resources for Project Building. This is a data collection site curated by Alan Liu that offers “[g]uides, tools, and other resources for practical work in the digital humanities by researchers, teachers, and students.”

Transcriptions Lab / UCSB

Transcriptions is a digital humanities lab within the English Department of the University of California, Santa Barbara. Their main goal is to “provide an interface where students and faculty can research, collaborate and make possible new and innovative work in the humanities at large.” Their projects

“explore the different ways that we can use new media and digital technology to make meaning in the humanities and they range in size from collaborative, multi-year undertakings to smaller, individual experiments with the possibilities inherent in technological mediation.”

Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice (ELMCIP) is a collaborative research project funded by Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA). One aspect of their project is the Anthology of European Electronic Literature. Intended to “inspire and teach educators about the various contexts and manners in which ‘born-digital’ culture in general, and electronic literature in particular, is taught across the world”, it includes syllabi, exercises & assignments, essays, and presentations.

DigLibArts Whittier

Part of Whittier College’s Digital Liberal Arts Center (DigLibArts) is the Whittier Faculty Pedagogical Repository, which has “gathered a range of materials from Whittier College faculty in an effort to foster a community of scholar-educators invested in sharing material and building upon each others’ work. All of the materials include innovative modes of integrating digital technologies into courses and assignments.”

How did they make that?

Miriam Posner, a professor of Digital Humanities at UCLA, has posted a collection of digital humanities projects. Her goal:

Many  students tell me that in order to get started with digital humanities, they’d like to have some idea of what they might do and what technical skills they might need in order to do it. Here’s a set of digital humanities projects that might help you to get a handle on the kinds of tools and technologies available for you to use.

The collection includes a gallery of primary sources, a mapping project, a network visualization,
a computer-aided text analysis, a historical 3D model, and a longform, media-rich narrative.
