British Library: Digital Scholarship Blog

Librarians, archivists, and researchers should check out the Digital Scholarship Blog from the British Library (previously featured in the 02-09-2018 Scout Report), which won the 2018 Digital Humanities Award for Best Blog Post or Series of Posts. The blog is updated by the Digital Curators from the library's Digital Scholarship Department, with contributions from colleagues and special guests. The department, founded in 2010, is made up of a group of cross-disciplinary experts in digitization, librarianship, digital history and humanities, and computer science, to support researchers and staff seeking how best to utilize the library's digital collections and data. Blog posts may feature topics such as calls for applications to various programs or contests and details on upcoming conferences. Many posts also feature relatable content such as anecdotes from staff and students about working on improving citations, writing noteworthy articles on Wikipedia, the ups and downs of preserving and integrating older formats, seeking efficient ways to add data, and more. Readers can navigate the blog by scrolling through recent posts or find older posts in the Archives menu on the right side of the page.
