Overview

The Cyberinfrastructure for Digital Humanities and Creative Activities (CyberDH) group, a unit of UITS Research Technologies, provides services to all practitioners of digital humanities and creative activities on all Indiana University campuses.

CyberDH focuses primarily on activities that leverage IU's research computing services. The group's primary areas of expertise are text analysis, 3D digitization, and creative activities that use advanced media, and virtual and augmented reality technologies.

Secondary areas of expertise include the use of scholarly content management tools (such as WordPress, Omeka, Sketchfab, and Scalar) to support scholarship and teaching.

CyberDH also offers short-term and extended consultations, and extensive training opportunities via workshops and other outreach events.

Text analysis

Research Technologies supports text analysis primarily through the use of Jupyter Notebooks with scripts coded in Python and/or R. These notebooks are annotated for beginning coders. Third-party tools also are supported. For more, see Text analysis algorithms supported by CyberDH at IU.

Scholarly content management

CyberDH also supports content management systems for scholarship and access to 3D objects, including Scalar, WordPress, SketchFab, and Omeka. To get started with one of these, email CyberDH to schedule a consultation.
