Digital Research in Humanities and Social Sciences

About this guide

This guide provides a starting place for researchers who want to find resources about digital research in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The guide has three sections:

  • The Subject Specific Resources sections contain books, journals, and websites devoted to digital aspects of different discipline areas.
  • The Tools section contains a brief list of tools for different digital methods, resources for learning how to use them, and examples of projects using those methods. Some of the discipline-specific resources also include information on tools and how to use them.
  • The Primary Sources section provides sources of data with which you can use these methodologies. Some of these are proprietary databases for which Deakin has a subscription, and others are Open Access collections. When using Deakin's databases, please adhere to the licence agreements for those databases.


Contact your Liaison Librarian if you have any questions about how to get the best use out of a database.

The Library does not provide support or instruction for digital tools or methodologies.
