Emma Annette Wilson has pulled together a very approachable and packed resource for aspiring Master of Library Science (MLS) students and those new to digital humanities (DH). The book is as easy to follow as it is informative, providing a balance between the practicality of various digital humanities methodologies, the development of those methodologies, and approaches to engage with them. The author does, at times, assume that, while you may not have a traditional library degree from which to draw, you have a cursory understanding of MLS-specific disciplines (such as cataloging). Yet, there is still ample discussion of relevant areas like metadata and insights into other types of librarianship activities that will be useful to DH project leads who are new to academic librarianship.
