Abstract: In this chapter, Zach Coble details the skills, experiences, and training necessary to get started with digital humanities in libraries. After providing a brief outline of the different types of digital humanities work, we will examine six categories of skills that digital humanities librarians should be competent in. Practical examples of experiences and training are provided, focusing on getting involved in existing projects and connecting with others interested in digital humanities work. An emphasis is placed on the idea that the skills in the digital humanities librarian’s toolkit are transferrable and can be acquired through non-digital humanities projects, and that developing these skills will help you become a more well-rounded librarian.
