Series editors Liza Potts and Kathie Gossett announced today the launch of a new book series Practices in the Digital Humanities with a partnership between the University of Michigan Press and Matrix Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences.

Series Goals
This book series is focused on the practices of the digital humanities by providing best practices, models, case studies, and examples of how to build to standards, architect experiences, manage systems, and manage projects. Bringing together experts from across the digital humanities, this series will be written by digital humanities scholars for digital humanities scholars. This series will also provide digital humanities graduate students with a much-needed source for the practice of digital humanities. This book series will fill a major need for books on practice from the digital humanities perspective by providing specific examples of how to design, develop, and maintain digital humanities projects.
