The progression of the digital humanities towards augmented and virtual realities: new initiatives

Craig Pett, Gale Australia - New Zealand

Concurrent session 5, Lightning talks
Tuesday 14 February 2017, 2:30pm - 3:25pm


Text and data mining is vital to the digital humanities. A new mode of accessing this text and metadata by Libraries has been provided by Gale which has opened up access and innovation in the digital humanities. No longer are hard drives and delays in access the bane of the researchers existence. Instead the cloud-based platform gives easy use and reuse. This presentation describes the nature of access and how where advances in  the Digital Humanities can move beyond data visualisation towards augmented and virtual realities.
