Australasia needs to foster the development of regional communities of practice and participate in international communities of practice, linking the digital humanities researchers and academic library practitioners, as part of research infrastructure capability development and library support for data intensive humanities research.

This one and half hour birds of a feather session is proposed as a brainstorming session for digital humanities researchers, academic librarians, and research infrastructure specialists, to work together on shaping research support for data intensive humanities research.

Topics for consideration:

  • Digitisation for research
  • Data handling and management  
  • Linking data about people and organisations
  • Partnerships with GLAMs
  • Collections “as data”
  • DARIAH cultural heritage data reuse charter
