Digitization

Ashley,

I love that you are interested in digitization. I am too. It is fascinating how technology has changed to allow for the proliferation of information.  Coming from a history background, I am constantly thinking of the possible uses for analysis. It is what actually pushed me into the Library Science program. I tool a Digital Humanities course during my history program and I fell in love with the possibilities. One of my favorites is Shakespeare Visualization Tool that maps networks in Shakespeare’s tragedies. Some fascinating work is being done. Some even have used these network analysis tools to guess who will die in “Game of Thrones.” Archives are my specialty as well. I enjoy being able to provide access and developing tools like that. Though one day I can see myself in more of a research institution developing these tools as opposed to a public archive.

Thanks,

Mike
