The University Library and the Institute for the Humanities at the University of Illinois at Chicago recently celebrated the Digital Humanities Initiative and the opening of the Digital Scholarship Hub at the Richard J. Daley Library. This joint effort will enhance the current and future work of faculty and students throughout the university by developing a greater digital presence on the UIC campus.
