Lecture

Harriett Green, English and Digital Humanities Librarian at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, discusses collaborative digital humanities research work she has pursued with Professor Ted Underwood as well as other researchers at UIUC and beyond. She considers how librarian embedment in work such as creation and assessment of digital humanities tools, teaching digital humanities tools to students, and humanities data curation reveals the critical need for collaborations between librarian and scholar for successful digital humanities research.

Underwood, Associate Professor of English at UIUC approaches the same topic from a scholar's perspective, explaining why he finds his data mining of literary history increasingly organized around libraries (including both the UIUC Library and HathiTrust).

MLibrary Emergent Research Series events are aimed at better understanding the various types of research undertaken across campus, particularly as they relate to library services and support, opportunities for collaboration, data management and preservation, and beyond.
