Finding Books

"Digital Humanities" is a relatively new term; given the history of the field, and the definition of Digital Humanities as an  "array" of practices, there are a number of subject terms that lead to the debates in the field; in general, the best strategy for finding materials of interest is to start with keywords like: "digital and literary" and to follow the subject links in a relevant book for more books on the topic.
