- NEW! See Lisa Spiro’s wonderful post “Getting Started in the Digital Humanities.”
- Also Sheila Brennan’s “Navigating DH for Cultural Heritage Professionals,” which includes useful advice for all.
- Twitter is an essential tool for keeping up with the field. See ProfHacker’s post “How to Start Tweeting (and Why You Might Want To)” for tips and links to other articles about Twitter. HASTAC also has a post with some very useful resources.
- An RSS reader is another must-have. Here’s a great video that explains RSS in Plain English – thanks to the UMWBlogs FAQs page! (But see also this piece on its perils…)
- A bookmarking tool, such as delicious, is also very useful; to see it in action, take a look at Matt Gold’s shared bookmarks. ProfHacker has a good article on the topic, and also on alternatives.
- You may also want to investigate a solution for “asynchronous reading” via a tool such as ReadItLater – see the ProfHacker article on this.
- Take a look at William J. Turkel’s “Going Digital” and his other “How To” posts – some information is aimed at digital historians, but most is broadly applicable.
- ProfHacker at the Chronicle of Higher Education, as you’ve seen from these examples, provides great advice on tools and techniques for managing the digital and the humanities aspects of your life.
