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 2019.
dh+lib Review posts appear on the dh+lib homepage, in a weekly email newsletter, and are shared in our Twitter feed. Items are selected from the streams of content produced and shared by the dh+lib community. We hope to cast a wide net and include content produced by librarians, archivists, museum workers, faculty, information professionals, technologists, researchers, 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 Review homepage using Press Forward. 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 batch to the site each Thursday and share the posts with our Twitter followers. With over 7,700 Twitter followers and 30,000 pageviews per year, dh+lib Review plays a significant role in amplifying the reach of various DH content.
Are you interested in volunteering for dh+lib Review? It’s an easy way to get involved in the dh+lib community and stay current with conversations in Digital Humanities, whether you’re a subject specialist or library student who’s curious about growing in this area of librarianship. 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 2019 semester – sign up today!
We’re looking forward to working with you!
