Joint Event:Conference on Digital Encounters with Cultural Heritage / Workshop on Research and Education in Urban History in the Age of Digital Libraries
March 30-31, 2017, Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB), Dresden, Germany

Urban history, drawing on architectural heritage and cultural history, is one of the key areas in digital humanities. Regarding to that research interest, digital libraries play an important role, especially for visual media like photographs, paintings, or drawings, but also for physical and virtual models. Due to the wide field of possible research, different approaches, methods and technologies have emerged – and are still emerging. Due to the role of digital libraries and repositories as main facilitators of scientific research and dissemination, a further development of technical infrastructures like research environments and digital repositories, human resources, transnational knowledge exchange and cooperation, social and economic impacts, valorization and dissemination are increasingly important matters. In this context, the question arises as to how research and education of urban history can be supported by digital libraries.
