Humanists can utilize a wide array of digital tools to support research tasks, from organizing notes, to web publishing, to data visualization. This section discusses tools and software run in a browser or a personal machine, many of which are free to use, and those specifically available to University of Chicago researchers.

The topics in this section offers only an overview of common digital humanities research methods, and a only a sampling of tools to assist in each process. Some of these listed are easily executed and accessible to users with less digital experience, while others will require more expertise in programming, data management, and other skills. However, the digital humanities team is available to assist with these tools and with locating other resources to support your project; please contact us for support.
