Our work

Student opportunities
We offer six paid part-time undergraduate internships each academic year to students undertaking a Humanities or combined honours Humanities programme. Digital Humanities Internships are an opportunity for students to gain work experience in the Cultural Heritage sector. We also work on student projects such as Grand Challenges, giving students first-hand experience of archival practice such as handling, cataloguing and recording metadata, as well as digitising 2D and 3D material.
Special Collections
The Digital Humanities team works closely with the University's Special Collections, which manages collections of archives, manuscript and book collections which are too rare, old or fragile to be kept on the open shelves of the library. Our teams work together to plan digitisation projects for Special Collections material. We use the equipment in the Lab to digitise selections from the archives, and work to make them publicly available online.
