Humanities Commons is a nonprofit network where humanities scholars can share their work in a social, open-access repository; create a professional profile; join and create forums to discuss common interests, and develop and publish new digital publications. The network is open to anyone working in or adjacent to the humanities.
THATCamp, The Humanities and Technology Camp, is an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. It is a type of "unconference" on the digital humanities in which participants decide on the content of the sessions and actively collaborate rather than simply attending. They are organized around the country.

A joint initiative of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Libraries and the UNL College of Arts and Sciences, the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities is advancing collaborative, interdisciplinary research by creating unique digital content, developing text analysis and visualization tools, and encouraging the use (and refinement) of international standards.
The Centre for Digital Humanities is able to capitalise on UCL's world-leading strength in information studies, computing science, and the arts and humanities. It brings together work being done in many different departments and centres, including the university's library services, museums and collections. The centre's location in central London, close to the British Museum and British Library, also makes it an ideal base for collaboration with organisations outside UCL, such as museums, galleries, libraries and archives.
The Department of History and Art History at George Mason University, in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, has created a fully online Graduate Certificate in Digital Public Humanities. The program trains students in the digital skills and tools that are increasingly essential to careers in education, public history, libraries, publishing and many kinds of government and non-profit work. This 15-credit program consists of three online courses followed by a remote internship with a unit of the Smithsonian Institution. Because it is both online and part-time, students can pursue it while working or attending another graduate program. The certificate can also be combined with our own History M.A. program.
HILT is a week-long summer intensive workshop for learning DH tools and methodologies sponsored by the Center for Digital Scholarship at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis University Library, the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland, and MATRIX: Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences at Michigan State University.

metaLAB is a research and teaching unit at Harvard University dedicated to exploring and expanding the frontiers of networked culture in the arts and humanities. It is founded on the belief that many of the key research challenges and opportunities of our era—fundamental questions regarding experience in a connected world, democracy and social justice, the boundaries between nature and culture—transcend divisions between the arts, humanities and sciences; between the academy, industry, and the public sphere; between theoretical and applied knowledge.
An annual Digital Humanities training event which usually takes place in July at the University of Oxford. DHOxSS delegates are introduced to a range of topics suitable for researchers, project managers, research assistants, and students who are interested in the creation, management, analysis, modelling, visualization, or publication of digital data for the humanities. Each delegate follows one of our 5-day workshops and supplements this with plenary guest lectures by experts in their fields.
