Digital Humanities – Opportunities and Risks. Connecting Libraries and Research

The IFLA Satellite Meeting 2017 in Berlin on August 15 - 17 will be hosted by BBAW, DARIAH-EU, DINI, IFLA, LIBER and the Library of the Humboldt University Berlin.

Due to the digital transformation the importance of digital scholarship is growing up rapidly for libraries and cultural heritage institutions like archives and museums worldwide.
These institutions offer and share their collections with digital scholars or researchers, who need the mostly digitized materials for their work.

From this background research projects concerning the humanities or cultural studies focus more and more archives, libraries and museums.
At the same time the availability of services is expected, which support the researchers projects beyond the delivery of digitized pictures and texts. Infrastructures and tools are needed for operating and processing the materials, which research is working on.

These and other themes will be presented and discussed on the IFLA satellite meeting „Digital Humanities – Opportunities and Risks. Connecting Libraries and Research“, which will take place from the 15th to the 17th August 2017 at the Humboldt University of Berlin (HU) and the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science (BBAW) .
The conference is hosted by the IFLA standing committee „Academic and Research Libraries“, the European library association LIBER, the European research infrastructure DARIAH, the German Initiative of Network Information (DINI), the BBAW and the library of the HU.
