    Abstract:
    Digital humanities pedagogy has an experimental, DIY sensibility and uses technology to help students engage with course material. There is an ongoing conversation among faculty who share assignments and tools with one another and it is important for librarians to be a part of that. By partnering with professors who are teaching digital humanities techniques, librarians can build on their role as instructors and reflect the emerging identity of the library as an active and productive space on campus and not only a warehouse of primary and secondary sources. Furthermore, connecting the library to digital humanities work will create new ways for users to work with library collections and give the library a low-stakes way to experiment with emerging tools.
