I have heard a need expressed among subject librarians and subject specialists for a “Digital Humanities Boot Camp” that would give attendees enough of a background/overview of digital humanities technologies, projects, etc., to talk about the current state of the field with interested faculty. There are lots of examples of 2-3 day hands-on, immersive workshops, but the specific need I’ve heard described is more like a series of 1-2 hour sessions on overview topics. During this session, I’d like to brainstorm ideas for inclusion & organize them into a logical format that any participant could take back and use as a roadmap for creating a boot camp on their campus.
To be clear, this is not a workshop where attendees will go through a DH Boot Camp! This is a session to outline what ideas, technologies, and learning objectives a DH Boot Camp for Subject Librarians would need to cover.
