An Introduction to Humanities Data Curation

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 
This webpage is a compilation of articles that address aspects of data curation in the digital humanities. The goal of it is to direct readers to trusted resources with enough context from expert editors and the other members of the research community to indicate how these resources might help them with their own data curation challenges.
Each article provides a short introduction to a topic and a list of linked resources. Structuring articles in this way acknowledges the many excellent resources that already exist to provide guidance on subjects relevant to curation such as data formats, legal policies, description, and more.
The table of contents:
-An Introduction to Humanities
-Data Curation-Classics, “Digital Classics” and Issues for Data Curation
-Data Representation
