DH Box: A Digital Humanities Laboratory in the Cloud

Development of DH Box, a web-based platform that enables researcher and student access to multiple digital humanities tools. The project is designed for institutions and individuals with minimal technical infrastructure or expertise, including community colleges and newcomers to the field.
 

DH Box provides an innovative approach to Digital Humanities pedagogy, helping teachers introduce DH tools quickly and effectively. The project increases the speed and ease with which novice users can begin hands-on practice with DH tools and it does so by facilitating interaction with rich datasets from institutions such as the NYPL and the British Library. Because DH Box lowers technical barriers to entry, students in the humanities will be able to bypass set-up and compatibility issues and move more quickly to their own research.
