Methods and tools

One of the main tasks of the Service Center for Digital Humanities (SCDH) is to develop open, free, and generically applicable DH services. In doing so, we prepare developments that often originate from concrete projects in such a way that they can be used generically in a wide variety of project contexts.

In the coming years, we will therefore make more and more digital methods and tools available to you at this place. Until then, you can find and use the previous SCDH software developments on our Github page.
