Talk given to the AMICAL Consortium, 31 March 2022
There are many ways that digital humanities methods and approaches can be incorporated into the undergraduate classroom, from a one-off workshop or in-class activity, to a semester-long project. Across this continuum, there are opportunities for librarians to play a crucial role in advancing student learning. First, librarians are adept at thinking about information architecture, metadata, and data literacy, which are crucial aspects to digital humanities work. Second, librarians bring a perspective to working with materials and collections that imagines both the short term audience for a project as well as long term preservation concerns. Third, librarians, especially those in small liberal arts colleges, are adept at cross-disciplinary translation and communication. This presentation will discuss how librarians can partner with faculty in the classroom through examples of projects and activities that foreground librarian expertise.
