MEDIA REVIEWS
"...high value for scholars interested in digital humanities and for academic support staff who are planning projects and programs. Recommended." -- Choice Choice
"...a valuable resource not only for students and researchers in digital humanities, but for a variety of other fields of study especially information management and digital libraries." -- Journal of Librarianship and Information Science
"An extensive range of topics is covered: digitisation, image processing, 3-D recording of museum objects, text encoding, historical bibliography and online teaching materials. The use of social media, especially for encouraging public engagement in humanities research, is also discussed. There is an interesting analysis of institutional models for digital humanities (again based primarily on the activities of the UCL Centre), which touches on some broader issues connected with involvement in teaching and research as well as the provision of training and support. Each chapter is supplemented and expanded by the inclusion of a series of short case studies - projects illustrating the specific application of the topic under discussion." -- Australian Library Journal
