In the webinar, Sarah and Anna addressed some frequently asked questions about libraries and digital humanities, such as what is digital humanities, and how are librarians engaging in digital methodologies in their work? What types of digital humanities activities are BLC institutions participating in? How can librarians learn more about digital humanities?

Anna Kijas is Senior Digital Scholarship Librarian at Boston College Libraries where she experiments with the application of digital humanities tools and methods, focusing as much on the process, as on the final product.
