Ann Whiteside, Harvard GSD. "Digital Humanities and New Emerging Paradigms for Librarians"

David Sume, McGill University. "Exploring a book and its archival materials: blurring the boundaries between a digital facsimile and a comprehensive digital archive"

Allison Benedetti, SAHARA Project Director, Society of Architectural Historians,
and Jolene de Verges, MIT. "Collectivism, Collaboration and Curation: the SAHARA Model of Digital Humanities"

This session will explore the digital humanities in the disciplines of art and architectural history through three lenses. One lens will focus on the shifting roles of scholars and librarians in more general terms. The second lens will examine the development of the digital construction of facsimile books-- the impact on building collections and emerging technologies, and the idea of the art book. The third lens will look at the SAHARA project and successful collaborative work methods that result in shifting roles within a digital humanities project. Issues addressed in this session will include collection building, curatorial roles, and emerging technologies.
