POST: Digital Humanities and Digital Preservation 1

Leslie Johnston (Library of Congress) has written a post reflecting on digital preservation of digital humanities projects that serves as a nice overview of some of the issues involved, and calls for greater consideration of sustainability issues.

While one would like to focus on pure scholarship — discovering new sources, intuiting new interpretations, writing and designing innovative ways of presenting the outcomes of the research — sustainable technology has to be a consideration alongside the scholarly endeavor.

This post was produced through a cooperation between Caro Pinto and Patrick Williams (Editors-at-Large for the week), Roxanne Shirazi (Editor for the week), and Zach Coble and Sarah Potvin (site editors).
