Introducing the Digital Humanities

This guide provides a list of resources and brief descriptions of several varying areas that encompass the digital humanities.

What are exhibits and publishing in the digital humanities?

Several digital humanities projects include components for disseminating research results or involve the public as consumer or a participant.  In some cases the exhibit is the project and others it is merely a portion of it or a method to show what was done.  Projects where digital materials are showcased along with interpretive content, digital forms of the monograph, or where public interaction through a website all fit into this category.  Tools such as Omeka and Scalar are designed for these purposes.  While you can achieve similar results by building a traditional website or using a content management system (CMS) like Wordpress, these tools were designed for exhibit and publishing projects and also help you manage your data and digital materials in responsible ways.
