How can we help you?
Need help digitizing and making data available for humanities research?
The University Library is happy to work with you on this. For example, by digitizing material from the Special Collections on request, but also by mediating in the acquisition of datasets. We make our own data available as openly as possible, preferably as Linked Open Data that is FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable).
Looking for digital resources?
It's easy to get lost in the enormous supply of digital sources. With the Beeldbank (Image Bank) we offer an infrastructure for digitized material from the Special Collections. There is also an infrastructure for geodata and its visualization, namely Geoplaza.
Need advice on licensing, copyright, metadata and how to work well with humanities data? The UL is happy to advise you.
Sparring with the UL about working with data in your research?
We would like to explore with you how we can help you with your research. This will allow us to further expand our own expertise so that we can be of even better service to you in the future, for example when it comes to metadata or data visualization.
Make use of our network?
Through the UL's network, researchers inside and outside the university come into contact with each other so that expertise and knowledge can be shared not only through scientific literature but also directly.
There are also more general forms of research support with interfaces to Digital Humanities, such as Open Science or the preparation of Research Data Management plans. The UB offers support for these as well.
The Faculty of Humanities offer an extensive English-language workbench of Digital Humanities, with information on accessible digital methods and techniques for research in the humanities.
