Elective Affinities: The Library in Digital Humanities, and Digital Humanities in the Library

The library profession’s deep history, rich culture, and well-developed professional practices have served remarkably well as they adopt, adapt to, and develop novel methods in support of the digital humanities.  But this relationship is profoundly mutual, and the affinities between library practice and DH practice lead in both directions.  Not only has modern digital scholarship influenced the library world: traditional library values and practices continue to inform and enhance the evolution of DH work.  This talk will celebrate and elaborate on some of the profound elective affinities between librarianship and the digital humanities.
