The NFAIS 2016 Humanities Roundtable theme is set to appeal to a variety of audiences in the information community, including librarians, digital humanities scholars, information aggregators/providers and publishers. Our set of expert presenters will explore the world of digital humanities through a variety of perspectives and lenses, including:
