Digital humanities: a whim or a (bibliographical) routine?
The article presents and analyses selected digital humanities projects and research initiatives in which libraries and other heritage institutions participate actively. These ambitious global projects supplement the existing knowledge on general and specific social and cultural-historical phenomena in the field of written cultural heritage with the help of web-based applications, tools and the collaborative location-independent research approach. Indirectly, the article also gives insight into the analogue and the digital aspects of digital humanities, as well as into the opportunities that the field offers to researchers, libraries, and other heritage institutions – also as potential initiators, hosts and active partners in such projects, as well as in in the international research communities and initiatives.
