The plethora of concepts and methods of quantitative analysis in the humanities field, such as music encoding, data visualization, mapping, and more, can be overwhelming. The number of digital tools available for examining text and performance continues to multiply. How should librarians prepare themselves to support digital humanities scholarships? Where should they start and how can they approach DH from a critical perspective? Two academic librarians who work with literature and performing arts disciplines set a project goal of 6-8 months to do a deep dive into DH. We will share steps taken to gain familiarity, establish connections, acquire skills, and publicize services. In addition, we will also describe how our processes varied based on discipline. Attendees will engage in discussion of the librarian’s role as digital humanist and will leave the session with concrete ideas on how to get started with digital humanities.
