Supporting Other People’s DH Projects
As a librarian, how can we help other division’s projects?
Between institutions, how can you offer your help?
How do we get the information out as to what we have? – Especially for Archives
Example of ride board – digital humanities ride board?
Practical questions of type of engagement, who will manage
Like LinkedIn, but something people would use
University of Nebraska Digital Humanists
Inclusiveness, accessibility
More dynamic system than just Excel
Barriers to entry in sharing, collaborating, participating – service vs. research
Large historical societies – how they help sustain the small ones
Evaluation and marketing – librarians don’t have the needed skillset

About Diane Cline

I'm an ancient Greek historian and classicist and I teach a course in Digital History at GWU. My most recent research projects use Social Network Analysis to examine the relationships of Alexander the Great, Philip II, Socrates and Pericles. I am interested in understanding what made the Greeks so innovative and creative, and I believe their social networks is part of the answer. Classes taught in 2013-17: History of Greece, Alexander the Great, Classical Athens, Classical Mythology, and HIST 3001 Digital History. Author of National Geographic's The Greeks: An Illustrated History (2016).
