Building Capacity for Digital Humanities. A Framework for Institutional Planning

ECAR Working Group Paper, May 2017

The working group paper is a collaboration between the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) and the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) is now available:

A growing number of researchers in the humanities are using computational tools and methods that are more typically associated with social and scientific research. These tools and techniques enable researchers to pursue new forms of inquiry and new questions and bring more attention to—and cultivate broader interest in—traditional humanities and humanities data. This paper outlines a practical framework for capacity building to develop institutional digital humanities support for IT staff, librarians, administrators, and faculty with administrative responsibilities.

The working group chairs, Quinn Dombrowski (University of California, Berkeley) and Joan Lippincott (CNI) will also be presenting on the paper and how it can be used at the Digital Humanities 2017 conference this August.
