The dh+lib Review, our weekly roundup of news, articles, and resources relevant to the digital humanities and librarianship, is now seeking editors-at-large for Fall 2017. Sign up for a shift today!
dh+lib Review posts appear on the dh+lib homepage, in a weekly newsletter sent to relevant mailing lists, and are shared in our Twitter feed. Items are selected from the streams of content produced and shared by the dh+lib community. We seek to cast a wide net and include content produced by librarians, archivists, museum workers, faculty, information professionals, technologists, and others.
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 make a final selection decision, write a brief snippet providing context for each resource, and then publish the week’s issue 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 to stay current with conversations in DH. Editors-at-large commit to a one-week shift (Thursday to Wednesday) that involves approximately 20 minutes of attention each day. We currently need editors-at-large for the Fall 2017 – sign up today!
