Articles

Book

Eileen Gardiner & Rondald G. Musto, Cambridge University Press, 2015, ISBN:978-1107601024
 
A good gateway to understanding digital humanities. The book centers on elements of digital humanities, digital tools, digital environment, digital publications and DH's evolving landscape. The strength of the book is its theoretical underpinnings and practical considerations for embarking on digital humanities projects. The weakness is that it is published in 2015, so some digital resources information needs to be updated.
