Abstract

Digital Humanities is inherently a collaborative endeavour. At the University of Melbourne, the Faculty of Arts and the University Library have collaborated on the establishment of a Digital Studio to support digital humanities research and partnership. Launched in late 2016, the Digital Studio has a direct physical connection between a new Arts Faculty building and the University’s flagship Baillieu Library. The project involved the establishment of a facility that provides services and infrastructure to support University researchers, professionals, and select industry experts and students working on Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) digital projects. The Library has been integrally involved in planning for this facility and longer term is expected to make a significant contribution to its ongoing operation and future success. The Digital Studio will be a front-of-house venue for the Library to provide training and delivery of a range of research support services in areas such as informatics, research data management, digitisation, digital preservation, and data mining.
