Digital Humanities Data

A broad definition of digital humanities is the use of technology to explore art, music, literature, history, architecture, and more. In terms of data searching and collection, digital humanities often uses text mining, primary sources, and digitized archives to study trends and concepts over time and across disciplines.

Digital Humanities data will work differently than a traditional data portal. Instead of searching for secondary data, you will find the links below take you to digitized collections of primary sources, archives, public domain literature, and more. From there you may have to use specialized tools and software to extract data and create visualizations.
