2. http://www.cdh.ucla.edu/instruction/dhcourses.html What is Digital Humanities? UCL Centre for Digital Humanities at theintersection of digital technologies and humanities.http://www.ucl.ac.uk/dh UCLA DH interprets the cultural and social impactof new media and information technologiesthefundamental components of the new informationageas well as creates and applies thesetechnologies to answer cultural, social, historical,and philological questions, both those traditionallyconceived and those only enabled by newtechnologies.http://www.cdh.ucla.edu/about/what-is.html 3. Digital Humanities: self defined Digital Humanities is self:defined 4. A Survey of Digital Humanities Centers in the USAby Diane M. Zorich, November 2008Where new media and technologies are used for humanities-based research, teaching, andintellectual engagement and experimentation. The goals of the center are to furtherhumanities scholarship, create new forms of knowledge, and explore technologys impacton humanities based disciplines. builds digital collections as scholarly or teaching resources; creates tools for authoring (i.e., creating multimedia products and applications with minimal technical knowledge or training) building digital collections analyzing humanities collections, data, or research processes managing the research process; departments uses digital collections and analytical tools to generate new intellectual products; offers digital humanities training conducts research in humanities and humanities computing (digital scholarship); offers lectures, programs, conferences, or seminars on digital humanities topics for general or academicaudiences; has its own academic appointments and staffing creates a zone of experimentation and innovation for humanists; serves as an information portal for a particular humanities discipline; serves as a repository for humanities-based digital collections provides technology solutions to humanities.http://www.clir.org/pubs/reports/pub143/pub143.pdf 5. Typical DH centres HASTAC Resource focused. Centers are organized around a primaryresource, located in a virtual space, that serves a specificgroup of members. All programs and products flow fromthe resource, and individual and organizational membershelp sustain the resource by providing content, and, insome instances, volunteer labor. Center focused. Centers are organized around a physicallocation, with many diverse projects, programs, andactivities that are undertaken by faculty, researchers, andstudents, and that offer many different resources todiverse audiences. Most of the centers surveyed operateunder this model. 6. Typical DH centres HASTAC Resource focused.

Danish Research Road Map2.1 Humanities and Social Sciences Humanities and social science researchers will to an increasing extentneed robust, generally available and internationally geared researchinfrastructures based on modern information technology. Thedevelopment of these new tools will significantly advance studies andinterpretations of human experiences, actions and decisions and thuslay the foundation for an enlightened civil society, competitive businessand industry and an efficient public sector. Research infrastructures that support humanities research havetraditionally been libraries, archives and various museum collectionsconsisting of historical documents, books and periodicals, maps,artefacts, art and other resources dispersed across different nationalinstitutions. On a smaller scale there are the university laboratorieswhich are used in humanities research of a more experimental nature,for example, in linguistics, communication and media research. http://www.fi.dk/filer/publikationer/2011/Danish_roadmap_for_research_infrastructures_2011/html/kap02.htm 8. RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTUREERIC DEFINITIONLegal framework for a European ResearchInfrastructure Consortium ERIC PracticalGuidelines Research facilities, resources and related services that are used bythe scientific community to conduct top-level research intheir respective fields and covers major scientificequipment or sets of instruments; knowledge-basedresources such as collections, archives or structures forscientific information; enabling ICT-based infrastructuressuch as Grid, computing, software and communication, orany other entity of a unique nature essential to achieveexcellence in research. Such infrastructures may be single-sited or distributed(an organised network of resources).. 9. Do ideas go into Infrastructure? Andrew Prescott Kings College London UK: 3 mostimportant pieces of infrastructure.. are: the network provision through JANET; the collective licensing of commercial digital packagesthrough JISC Collections; and the NESLI2 licensing of access to online journals ..issues confronting digital scholarship in thehumanities are less to do with the storage andcuration of data and much more to with creatingmodels which resist the commercialisation.. http://digitalriffs.blogspot.com/2012/02/thinking-about-infrastructure.html 10. Is DH service as usual or paradigm shifter? Whether Digital Humanities should be the application of computing, or an inquiry as to how digital media will or can irrevocably change the Humanities.

Visualization Centre failures Lack of communication and media to own staffor to public. Affected by political legacies. Funding not competitive, lack of kick start funds. Locked into expensive inflexible equipment. Intellectual capital hard to replace. Lack of ongoing training. Inability to define successful outcomes. 15. CFP: THE GENRE OF THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY? DATABASESAND THE FUTURE OF LITERARY STUDIEShttp://hastac.org/opportunities/cfp-%E2%80%9C-genre-twenty-first-century%E2%80%9D-databases-and-future-literary-studies Given that many digital projects have eschewed databases in theireffort to, as Susan Brown wrote of the Orlando Project, retain thefluidity, flexibility, and nuance of continuous prose,the PMLAdebate demands a reconsideration of the nature ofdatabases and their use in literary studies. This panel intervenes inthis technological debate. Do current database projects underminethe familiar rubrics of literary studies or productively challenge thedisciplinary status quo? How have databases reshaped ourunderstanding of literary history, archives, and digital remediation?Are databases truly inhospitable to narrative? Does a celebrationof the database participate in a fantasy of technological neutralityor enforce a new politics? We welcome papers that engage withthese questions, or with other dimensions of the database inliterary studies. 16. 10 Sci-Fi Predictions That BecameScience Fact http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiMzZ8-Ebq0 17. Internet Librarian: 50 Great Mobile Appsfor Libraries 46% of American adults own smart phones. By 2016, 10billion will be in use worldwide. By the year 2013 therewill be 81.4 billion apps. The average download of apps per device is 51. The average time spent on apps per day is 81 minutes. 80% of people continue to work after leaving the office. 68% check email before 8am in the morning. 50% of them check their work email while theyre still inbed. http://librarianinblack.net/librarianinblack/2012/10/mobileapps.html http://50apps.weebly.com/ 18.
