The dh+lib Review, a volunteer-driven service for highlighting and sharing the best of digital humanities and libraries, is looking for editors-at-large for Fall 2016. Sign up for a shift today!
dh+lib Review posts appear on the dh+lib homepage, in a weekly newsletter sent to the ACRL Digital Humanities Interest Group listserv, and in our Twitter stream. They are selected from an aggregated stream of content that is produced and shared by the dh+lib community. This stream – in the form of RSS feeds – casts a wide net and includes content produced by librarians, archivists, museum workers, faculty, information professionals, and technologists, just to name a few.
Our post-publication filtering process relies heavily on the work of our editors-at-large, who volunteer for one-week shifts to survey the stream of content and select what should be highlighted on the dh+lib homepage. Once the editors-at-large have made their nominations, the Review editors (Caitlin Christian-Lamb, Caro Pinto, Roxanne Shirazi, and Patrick Williams), make a final selection decision, write a brief snippet providing context for each resource, and then publish the week’s batch each Thursday.
Are you interested in volunteering for the dh+lib Review? It’s an easy way to get involved in the dh+lib community and great for staying current with conversations in DH. Editors-at-large commit to a one-week shift that involves approximately 20 minutes a day. We currently need editors-at-large for the Fall 2016 semester – sign up today!
Looking forward to working with you!
