Digital Scholarship and Digital Humanities are terms that describe rapidly growing techniques and methodologies in academia. For some Visual Resources professionals, the technologies that are used in DS/DH projects are perceived as a shift away from our skillset that requires significant additional learning and resources to participate. At the heart of many projects, however, are tools and techniques that have been employed in traditional VR facilities for years. This session offers case studies of how VR professionals with a conventional VR background can contribute to DS/DH projects in a meaningful way. It also offers an example of how VR professionals with minimal knowledge can learn these tools and produce meaningful projects.
