With the spread of digital humanities in universities today, librarians may wonder how this burgeoning field impacts library services and processes. While the roles of librarians involved in outreach or digital library services are addressed in professional settings, the role of collection services is under-discussed. Last year at this conference, there was a discussion around licensing and text mining, but the impact of digital humanities could be much broader and involve collection policies and reallocation of collection funds. This session will consist of an introduction to digital humanities scholarship, brainstorming of effects on collection services, and then focused discussion of selected effects with the goal of establishing a place for collection services in professional conversations about libraries and digital humanities. Attendees will hopefully leave with a better understanding of the role of libraries in digital humanities scholarship and with a desire to further promote the role that collection services can play as libraries move to engage this scholarly trend.
