This report is based on a Europe-wide survey run by LIBER's Digital Humanities & Digital Cultural Heritage Working Group. The survey focused on digital collections and the activities libraries undertake around them. It covered the following topics and themes:

  • Awareness
  • Collections
  • Funding
  • Future Work
  • Impact
  • Organisation of DH in library
  • Partnerships
  • Services/support
  • Staffing/skills
  • Spaces (physical and digital)

These themes were based on input from participants at the Digital Humanities and Digital Cultural Heritage workshop at LIBER’s 2018 Annual Conference (Lille, France; 4-6 July).  From their suggestions, topics were selected and cross-checked with other similar surveys, to ensure all areas were covered. 

The final survey consisted of 83 questions and was open for responses between 1 February and 15 March 2019.
