The Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) is an interdisciplinary research center and academic unit within the Princeton University Library. While the global digital humanities community is constantly defining and redefining itself, at CDH we embrace an inclusive understanding of DH that respects and investigates the myriad ways digital methods and technologies are opening new avenues for research into the human experience, past and present.

The CDH research team serves as a hub for expertise in digital methods, tools, and best practices that allow scholars to analyze traditional and unconventional source bases to discover and share new insights.
