This is the final post in a seven-part series by Samantha Herron, our 2017 Junior Fellow. She created this guide to help LC Labs explore how to support digital scholarship at the Library and we started publishing them in January. She’s covered why digital materials matter, how to create digital documents, what digital documents make possible, text analysis tools, spatial humanities/GIS/mapping & timelines, and network analysis tools. Herron rounds out all of this useful information with lists of digital scholarship people, labs and blogs to follow to learn even more. The full guide is also available as a PDF download.
We hope you’ve gained some introductory understanding of what digital scholarship is and how to go about planing a digital project. Please feel free to add your own favorite resources to this list in the comments of this post. And a big “thank-you” to Sam for creating this guide during her fellowship. Look for this content to be developed in a a workshop in the next year, so we would really value your input on more resources and guides to consider. LC Labs is interested in helping scholars and users of all backgrounds to use the Library’s collections in digital projects. Also check-out the LC for Robots page where we’ve created a one-stop-shop for the Library’s computational resources and get started using the tools and techniques you’ve learned about in this blog series.
