The University Library provides a range of services for humanities researchers who use digital tools, databases, and archives. The digital humanities are receiving increased focus, and there are plans to establish a digital humanities lab at UiB. At this meeting we will hear about what the University Library offers at the moment, and we will discuss what we would like to see in the future.

Some of the presentations will be in Norwegian, or with Norwegian slides and English presentation. A lot will be in English, so please do come even if your Norwegian is a bit shaky.
