The DH Café, so called for its informality and the opportunity for the short (or longer) visit welcomes you, with an invitation to discover, encounter, discuss and reflect.
Created to respond to graduate students' increasing interest in exploring the field, this site highlights selected current and historical resources related to digital humanities and new forms of scholarly communication, broadly defined.
While the format is similar to that of a library guide, readers are invited to write for the site. Your thoughts and suggestions are most welcome, at any time!
The site was conceived, built, and edited (until summer 2012) by Mary Beth Clack, a former Research Librarian in Services for Academic Programs in Widener Library.
