Announcing Digital Health Humanities Research Consultations

The UCSF Library is pleased to offer one-on-one virtual digital health humanities research consultations led by our digital health humanities program coordinator. These consults are open to faculty, students, and staff at any career phase and any step in their research projects.

During these hour-long consultations, faculty, students, and staff can learn about and get one-on-one support on digital humanities methods, tools, and platforms. Additionally, participants can expect support for various digital humanities methods and tools, including: 

  • GIS mapping (ArcGIS and QGIS)
  • Text analysis (Voyant, AntConc), topic modeling, and sentiment analysis
  • Network analysis (Gephi, Net.Create)
  • Digital arts-based research
  • Humanistic data sets (Airtable, Excel)
  • Digital archives and repositories (Mukurtu, Collection Builder)

Additionally, these consults can cover classroom interventions that use digital tools, and support born digital assignments (web pages, blogs, podcasts, story maps, and video). For this kind of support, we require at least four weeks lead time before visiting a class. 

If you have questions about the consultations, are unsure if your research might apply, please contact the digital health humanities program coordinator
