Digital Humanities - Digital Scholarship

Digital Humanities (DH) / Digital Scholarship (DS) is a key theme and professional focus identified in the 2013 IFLA Trend report, and is relevant to IFLA's mission.

The IFLA Knowledge Management Section believes that there are diverse aspects, multi-dimensional and interdisciplinary interests of DH/DS that need be explored by IFLA's broader communities in the coming
years. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • DH/DS scope, context and relevance in multi-sector library and information services organization missions;
  • Librarian and information professional's role in partnering, participating, supporting and facilitating DH/DS endeavors;
  • The applications, tools and methodologies of DH/DS from both scholar's and library/information service organization's perspectives;
  • DH/DS related digital repository, metadata, discovery, presentation, publishing and preservation;
  • DH/DS related space design, technology infrastructure, and staffing model;
  • DH/DS related core competencies, workforce development, knowledge skills building and training;
  • DH/DS funding, partnership model and sustainability;
  • The global DH/DS best practices.
