Digital Humanities

Scholars in history, classics, literature, and other humanities disciplines have been creating and curating digital content for decades. Their efforts have focused on encoding schemes, semantic analysis, and providing rich collections of primary source materials. In more recent years, some digital humanities scholars have employed data-intensive e-research methodologies. CNI has worked with partners since its founding to ensure that attention is paid to the needs of researchers in digital humanities and has made the work of many digital humanities projects more widely known. CNI also addresses collaboration issues, including those that support projects developed jointly by scholars, librarians, and others in digital scholarship centers.
