What is Digital Humanities?

Digital Humanities (DH) most often refers to the application of digital technology to the concerns and practices of the humanities, but it can also encompass the application of humanistic methods to the study of technology. Through research and pedagogy, digital humanists have developed a distinctive set of methods, tools, and approaches that have proved relevant to a wide variety of disciplines, opening up possibilities for interdisciplinary and collaborative research.

Who is this research guide for?

This guide is primarily for students, faculty, and staff who are embarking on digital humanities work for the first time, or who are curious about what all the fuss is about.

At the King Library we embrace an expansive and inclusive definition of DH. We aim to support faculty and students in the arts, humanities, ethnic studies, and allied disciplines who are exploring the use of digital tools and methods in their pedagogy and RSCA.

If you have a project or idea and want to learn more about how the library might be able to help, feel free to reach out to our Digital Scholarship Librarian Nick Szydlowski at
