Librarianship has likely already provided you with all the skills you need to get rolling! I'd suggest moving outward from specific cases. Conduct a solid reference interview to figure out what the scholar who has come to you is really trying to do, and then use your research skills to help him or her review the literature and locate past projects in that particular area. Once you find some models, research the technologies behind them and seek ways to learn together! In my experience, you'll build more generalized "digital humanities" capacity at your library by working on a real project (even if it's rather specialized) than if you spent that time either on overviews or on learning a programming language without a specific reason to. Good luck! </p> Bethany Nowviskie on "OK, I just joined and saw the highlighted question about what this q and a is" http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/ok-i-just-joined-and-saw-the-highlighted-question-about-what-this-q-and-a-is#post-2114 Sat, 19 Oct 2013 12:33:42 +0000 Bethany Nowviskie 2114@http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/ <p>Ted has shared two great links. You might also find it interesting to read through the <a href="http://dhsi.org/courses.php">variety of courses</a> on offer at this year's Digital Humanities Summer institute, to get a sense of the methods and skills appropriate to answering different kinds of research questions or assisting with different sorts of projects. </p> <p>Some other resources that may be of particular interest to you (and me!

E.g. Omeka, MALLET, Gephi, Voyant. But my experience has been that you often need to be able to code if you want to bind pieces together in new ways. (In my own subfield of text mining, I would change "often" to "always"; this might be less true in other subfields.) However, I'm not a librarian, and people also disagree very strongly about the necessity of coding, so in the end you'll need to make your own decision. </p> raischmj on "OK, I just joined and saw the highlighted question about what this q and a is" http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/ok-i-just-joined-and-saw-the-highlighted-question-about-what-this-q-and-a-is#post-2110 Sat, 19 Oct 2013 11:30:20 +0000 raischmj 2110@http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/ <p>...that is, what it is for. Not to ask about schools, but sorry, I am a librarian seeking to transition to working with digital humanities. Could I please just ask what training I really need for this? writing code only? Are there off the shelf systems for digital projects that require less technical training? if I could get some answers to these queries, I promise I won't bother you with FINDING the training. I need a better handle on what to look for myself. thanks. </p>
