DH@UBC - a walking tour of resources

Many researchers interested in doing Digital Humanities sometimes need a good place to start. This introduction to DH tools and methods will explore resources that can inspire you to incorporate more DH methodologies into your research. Aimed at those new to DH, you will learn what digital humanities research and data looks like, what tools and methods might help you to approach some of these common scenarios, and where to go for more help and resources to get started in DH yourself.

This DH@UBC series of talks will be in partnership with the Library Research Commons Digital Scholarship series, and will cover the basics of how to get started with Digital Humanities at UBC. The series is aimed at those who are new to the University and who want to explore what DH can do for their research.
