How Can Libraries Support Digital Humanities?

During THATCamp, I hope to learn enough to start proposing ways the
library could support digital humanities scholarship on campus. The
eScience movement is gaining momentum here at Boston College because a team of librarians (I’m one of them) is participating in an ongoing learning process designed by ARL and DLF:
www.arl.org/rtl/eresearch/escien/escieninstitute/index.shtml.
Concrete outcomes thus far have been drafts of workshops for faculty and library staff and a libguide about eScience. While I can’t start something as complex as that on my own, the more I know about digital humanities, the better I’ll be to see what could be done at BC. I’d be interested to hear what others might suggest as concrete steps.
