Library and information science and digital humanities: two disciplines, joint future?

Robinson, L., Priego, E. and Bawden, D. (2015). Library and information science and digital humanities: two disciplines, joint future?. Paper presented at the 14th International Symposium on Information Science, 19-21 May 2015, Zadar, Croatia.

Abstract

The relationship between the disciplines of library and information science and of digital humanities is analysed, in terms of common topics, issues and perspectives. A model to integrate the two, based on the components of the communication chain of recorded information is proposed. It is suggested that a partial integration of the disciplines, to the extent that their concerns are reflected by this model, would be positive for the future of both.
