You will find a range of introductions into topics and links to individual blogs, all related and concerned with Digital Humanities. Why Diginarrate? For the new narratives and new knowledge that digitality provides.

I have allocated a page to a local example of digitization and digital archives. At the Cork Northside Folklore Project whilst working on the Cork Memory Map is where I developed an interest in digital archiving. This page discusses the folkloric, cultural and social value of such a project.

Unveiling Treasures for Modern Technology via http://www.alumni.iup.edu

I have given a page over to the need of digitization which can be seen here. In my opinion this is a universal need and this page only showcases one university’s attempt to digitize materials. This example highlights the necessity of accessibility to historical, cultural and social material for everyone to enjoy.
