"The drawings, mind maps, sketchbooks, photographs, old napkins, notes, inspirational quotes, pictures, books, conversations, critiques, and anything used to brainstorm or think about subject matter are important."
-- G. James Daichendt, Artist Scholar : Reflections on Writing and Research
Research data in the arts and humanities comes in many forms, and is called various things. Many humanists prefer to call their data "sources", while some artists simply prefer "stuff", but regardless of what it's called, "stuff" can reveal so much about out world. This guide was created by the DAAP Library to address the emerging role of research data in the art and humanities. We recognize that arts and humanities researchers may have different needs than their peers in other disciplines, so this guide is an introduction for arts practitioners and humanists.
