Developing Librarians at Duke -- a humanities and social sciences activism project (Munch & Mull discussion group)
Inspired by the Developing Librarian project at Columbia University Libraries, librarians at Duke have teamed up to build their own DH skills and create a Duke-based digital resource in the process. Arianne Hartsell-Gundy (Humanities section head) and Kelley Lawton (previous Social Sciences section head and head of East Campus Libraries) will introduce the project, and Ryan Deniston (Librarian for Public Policy and Political Science) will go into greater detail about the text mining aspects of their project.
The following readings introduce the original Developing Librarian Project at Columbia and its relationship to re-skilling librarians for digital humanities work:
