This session shifts the focus of discussion from theory and methods in digital history to the new ways historians are now working and accessing primary sources, as well the need for a more active involvement of historians in the development of this emerging historical infrastructure. It asks: How can individual scholars, departments, libraries, and institutions collaborate more fully to maximize the potential of digital primary sources for historical research?
