Library Trends 69 (1) Summer 2020: Digital Humanities and Libraries in China. Edited by Lian Ruan and Xingye Du.

In the era of big data, the development of digital humanities (DH) is driving humanities and social sciences research into a new data-driven research model, providing new research paths and methods for humanities research. In the past decade, DH has emerged in China. Practitioners and researchers in academic libraries, public libraries, library schools, and social science and humanities schools have actively participated in projects and research in DH. This special issue consists of sixteen papers that provide an overview, case studies, highlights of China’s DH practice, and research development from a comprehensive perspective. It has been an honor and a privilege during the process of developing this special issue to get to know these authors and work closely with them. Special thanks go to them all and their teams.
