Research projects that come under the fold of the “digital humanities” can take many forms, from the digitization and cataloging of sounds, documents, and images with cultural and historical significance, to interactive, born-digital projects that explore social and cultural trends through the analysis of “big data”… and beyond. For this reason, librarians and scholars are still working towards a definition of the term that encompasses all researchers’ efforts.

However, without question, faculty and librarians can be—and, in fact, are—key partners in the creation, curation, preservation, and dissemination of the research produced in this burgeoning field.

We want you to be a part of this conversation! In order to better understand how digital humanities research is done at academic institutions, Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, is working in conjunction with American Libraries magazine to seek the input of faculty and academic librarians on this important topic. These efforts will inform our continued conversation about digital humanities and the optimal methods of collaboration.

As part of our readership, Cengage Learning invites you to participate in this brief survey. All respondents who complete the survey will be entered into a drawing for one of three $100 American Express gift cards.

» Thank you for your interest in Gale and American Libraries’ survey on the digital humanities. The survey is now closed, with thanks to all who shared their insights. We look forward to reviewing the results!
