RESOURCE: The Digital Humanities Are Alive and Well and Blooming: Now What?

Nancy L. Maron (Sustaining Digital Resources Training Program) published “The Digital Humanities Are Alive and Well and Blooming: Now What?” in the September/October edition of the EDUCAUSE Review. Maron observes three challenges for institutions establishing a digital humanities program from her work with the Ithaka S+R Study:

  1. Building an Inventory
  2. Examining the Digital Life Cycle
  3. Choosing a model

While there is no single path towards sustaining digital humanities, Maron concludes:

A comprehensive plan that guides project leaders to build digital resources, that takes on the challenge of identifying and reaching out to the audiences who care, and that develops methods for preserving the digital assets will be the best hope for making sure that the seeds planted today will result in many more thousands of flowers blooming for years to come.
