Collaborations in Liberal Arts Colleges in Support of Digital Humanities

Aug 26, 2016

The field of digital humanities has been rapidly expanding over the course of the last decade. As such, academic institutions have been working to identify ways of supporting these new endeavors in a time of economic struggles. The Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi) at Hamilton College was conceived as one possible model of supporting digital humanities scholarship at a liberal arts institution. The DHi model relies heavily on collaboration among different teams in the Library and Information Technology Services across campus, and with institutions across the United States.

DHi’s technology infrastructure and research support model are designed to be innovative and sustainable. Our approach reduces the need for regular revamping of static faculty research web pages by creating infrastructure and processes that maintain research outcomes as ‘living” web presences accessible for faculty and student collaborative scholarship.
