Starting a Digital Project

There are numerous helpful guides for technology selection, project management, and tools and techniques. Alan Liu's excellent curated list of tools at the DH Toychest (available here) and The Programming Historian's tutorials (available here) are standouts.

We offer consultations to those interested in starting a digital project, including advice on tool and technology selection and templates for metadata creation. Please contact us if you'd like to schedule a consultation.
