Faculty and graduate students embarking on a digital humanities project can use the resources in the Scholarly
Commons to make connections, explore tools and obtain data.
A digital humanities project — one that applies computing tools to humanities research — encompasses a wide
range of work, research methods, and tasks such as:
Building an image archive and annotating the images with metadata.
Transcribing manuscripts and marking them up in TEI for text encoding and text mining.
Creating a map with linked data and annotations.
English and Digital Humanities Librarian Harriett Green can assist researchers at any stage of a project, as well as
connect researchers with other colleagues at Illinois working in the digital humanities, including scholars at the
Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS),Illinois Informatics
or "I-cubed") and Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH).
Tools with Illinois origins include:
SEASR: A research and development environment at NCSA that creates cutting-edge digital humanities
and data mining tools such as the Meandre enivronment.
MONK: A text mining tool designed to help humanities scholars discover and analyze patterns in the texts
