dh+lib: This website grew out of stirrings on the ACRL Digital Humanities Discussion Group (DHDG) listserv and a desire to create a more public venue for discussion. It aims to provide a communal space where librarians, archivists, LIS graduate students, and information specialists of all stripes can contribute to a conversation about digital humanities and libraries.
This blog is hosted by the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA). LITA is the leading organization reaching out across types of libraries to provide education and services for a broad membership of systems librarians, library technologists, library administrators, library schools, vendors, and others interested in leading edge technology and applications for librarians and information providers. The LITA Blog features original content from LITA members on current issues and trends relevant to the library technology community. Our writers represent a variety of perspectives, from library students to IT staff to public, academic, and special librarians. The blog also delivers announcements about LITA programming, conferences, and other events, and serves as a place for LITA committees and interest groups to share information with the community.
