Getting started in the Digital Humanities Lisa Spiro’s excellent blog that points you to a number of useful resources and discussions.

Digital Humanities Now showcases the scholarship and news of interest to the digital humanities community through a process of aggregation, discovery, curation, and review.

DH Curation Guide is a compilation of articles that address aspects of data curation in the digital humanities.

Excellent list of DH journals can be found here:

DIRT Directory is “a registry of digital research tools for scholarly use. DiRT makes it easy for digital humanists and others conducting digital research to find and compare resources ranging from content management systems to music OCR, statistical analysis packages to mindmapping software.”

TAPoR – Text Analysis Portal for Research is “a gateway to the tools used in sophisticated text analysis and retrieval.”

Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations

The Association for Computers and The Humanities

The Canadian Society of Digital Humanities/Société canadienne des humanités numériques

Humanities Arts Sciences and Technology Advanced Collaboratory (HASTAC) was “built to respond to the growing demand for digital humanities training in that area but also as an online repository of training materials, lectures, exemplars, and links that offer best practices to beginner, intermediate, and advanced digital humanists.”

Digital Humanities Summer Institute “provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new computing technologies and how they are influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation in different disciplines, via a community-based approach. During a week of intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures, participants share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced technologies. Every summer, the institute brings together faculty, staff, and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives communities as well as independent scholars and participants from industry and government sectors.” online training library is an online resource for thousands of video tutorials on design, video, photography, production and more.  Subscription based. Access via VPL or SFU Library.

Programming Historian “offers novice-friendly, peer-reviewed tutorials that help humanists learn a wide range of digital tools, techniques, and workflows to facilitate their research.”  Includes lessons on APIs, data management, data manipulation, distant reading, linked open data, mapping, network analysis, Omeka, web scraping, and programming in Python.

THATCamp : The Humanities and Technology Camp is an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot.

Vancouver Public Library Inspiration Lab “is a digital media lab at VPL’s central library downtown: a free place that combines traditional, digital and new media in a custom-built space dedicated to digital creativity, collaboration and storytelling. It features high-performance computers, analog-to-digital conversion, sound studios, video editing and self-publishing software.”  The Inspiration Lab also offers introductory workshops on topics such as: audio and video recording and editing, digitization, and self-publishing an ebook.

This guide is a starting point for exploring digital humanities at UBC and beyond. It links to a lot of the library resources such as digitization, text mining databases, books, etc.
Every Thursday from 12 – 2 p.m., UBC scholars can drop by to attend Pixelating: A Digital Humanities Mixer. The Mixer is an opportunity for DH scholars across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research.
