  2. 2. More than resource discovery… • Libraries and archives have spent the last two decades making digital assets and harvesting born-digital objects. • We can now do much more than use technology to discover these digital objects and embrace the opportunities afforded by an intellectual turn toward digitally-driven research • So digital research is about: – New tools – New discoveries – New understanding www.bl.uk “The emergence of the new digital humanities isn’t an isolated academic phenomenon. The institutional and disciplinary changes are part of a larger cultural shift, inside and outside the academy, a rapid cycle of emergence and convergence in technology and culture” Steven E Jones, Emergence of the Digital Humanities (2013) 2
  3. 3. Scalability: how to filter, find and analyse the information I need? • How many data is generated in ONE day? 1. Twitter: 7 TB 2. Facebook: 10 TB • By 2020 we will have approximately 35 ZB (1.1 Trillion GB) of Data available www.bl.uk 3

Be prepared to offer a short response which captures the thoughts of your group! www.bl.uk 11
