Digital technologies are transforming every scholarly discipline in the humanities, and many of the tools now used by scholars working in libraries and in digital humanities centers. In this talk New York Public Library's Digital Curator for the Performing Arts will discuss his role at the library and demonstrate the tools he is developing to preserve and provide access to the Library's collections.
