Presentation 1
A Year in the Life of a Digital Humanities Librarian
Three Digital Humanities Librarians from the University of Iowa Libraries’ Digital Scholarship and Publishing Studio discuss the emergence of the department from two separate units on campus, the workflows the Studio has established to support DH projects from conceptualization to preservation, and their roles within this infrastructure.
Presenters: Nikki JD White, Hannah Scates Kettler, Stephanie Blalock

Presentation 2
The Expansion and Development of Digital Humanities/Digital Scholarship Librarian Roles: A Look at the Data
This project is a qualitative and quantitative investigation of the role of digital humanities (DH) & digital scholarship (DS) librarians as they are described in job ads pulled from as far back as 2009.
Presenters: Paige Morgan, Helene Williams

Presentation 3
Avoiding techno-service-solutionism: Applying infrastructural perspectives and learning theory to digital humanities practice in the library
Many librarians express interest in digital humanities but perceive a gap in their technical expertise, thinking they need to learn to code or become familiar with tools. We argue digital humanities is based upon socially-constructed expertise and functions more through relationships than technical systems. We draw insights from learning theory and infrastructure studies.
Presenters: Matt Burton, Aaron Brenner
