Back in 2011 (you know, last month), I stated that I wanted to become a digital humanist (if that’s what it can be called). Over the past month, I’ve collected a number of resources in order to try and make this a reality. As just about everything I do professionally now, I’m sharing them with you.
Laura Bassi, a noted 18th-century Italian scientist, left behind 6,000 pages of intriguing documents that describe her life and work. They now rest in the archives of the principal municipal library in Bologna, Italy, safe but not accessible to the world at large.

Stanford University has teamed up with the Bologna library and the Istituto per i beni culturali della Regione Emilia-Romagna to scan Bassi’s archives and make them easily accessible online later this year.
LITA is pleased to announce that Information Technology and Libraries (ITAL) will become an open-access, electronic-only publication, beginning with the March 2012 issue (volume 31, issue 1). This change will help ensure the long-term viability of the journal by making it more accessible, more current, more relevant, and more environmentally friendly. ITAL will continue to feature high-quality articles that have undergone a rigorous peer-review process, but it will also begin expanding content to include more case studies, commentary, and information about topics and trends of interest to the LITA community and beyond. In addition to making new content openly available beginning in March, the complete electronic archive of ITAL and its predecessor, Journal of Library Automation (JOLA), will be made available online.
