What Are Digital Humanities?

While there have been many definitions of Digital Humanities, the following explanation from the Center for Digital Humanities at UCLA seems to capture it most succinctly: "Digital Humanities interprets the cultural and social impact of new media and information technologies, as well as creates and applies these technologies to interrogate cultural, social, historical, and philological questions." In other words, Digital Humanities exists at the intersection of computing and traditional scholarship, harnessing the power of digital tools and data to explain the world around us in new ways.

Use the links in the table of contents or the tabs at the top of the page in this guide to locate exemplary open access Digital Humanities projects from around the world, including student-created projects. Each page lists selected projects in a particular subject along with tips for navigating them and tools to search across multiple projects. Additional subjects will be added as projects in those areas are developed. In addition to the digital humanities projects in this guide, the Digital Tools & More page provides resources for getting started with the digital humanities.

Finally, if you don't find what you are looking for or need help navigating this guide, don't hesitate to contact the author of this guide or Ask a Librarian.
