POST: Keeping the “L” in Digital: Applying LIS Core Competencies to Digital Humanities Work 3

In an article in The Journal of Creative Library Practice, Kaetrena Davis Kendrick of the University of South Carolina Lancaster places “many core activities of [Digital Humanities] squarely in the domain of modern librarianship.” Reviewing the ALA Core Competencies of Librarianship, Kendrick “reveals how LIS competencies have been applied to a Korean popular culture DH project at Elon University,” directly connecting librarians to successful digital humanities practice. Kendrick concludes her article with a rousing affirmation that “the ‘L’ in digital stands for us: Librarians.”
