Partnering with libraries to support Digital Humanities Scholarship
Seth Cayley VP, Gale Primary Sources

The Digital Humanities is a fast-moving area of scholarship. However, many libraries lack access to suitable data sets, hosting platforms and tools that will allow all of their researchers to carry out Digital Humanities scholarship.

Publishers are therefore working with libraries to solve these problems. At Gale, we make the underlying data behind our digital archives available to researchers.

In this presentation, Seth will provide case studies of new research that has been carried out with access to Gale’s data, along with details of a new digital environment for accessing such data in the cloud.
