Electronic media hold information that can last a lifetime. However, proper care must be taken so this information can be retrieved and read time and time again. These resources provide information and advice on how to transfer audio and video recordings and information stored onto disks or CDs and how to ensure that this media is stored properly.

Interuniversity Research Center for Digital Humanities (CRIHN), located at Université de Montréal
Based at the University of Montreal, the Interuniversity Research Center for Digital Humanities (CRIHN) has 43 regular members, 20 collaborators and 5 postdoctoral fellows from eight universities, CEGEP and Quebec research institutions. In the last few years, we have witnessed a concentration of expertise and skills in the field of digital humanities, a concentration unique in the French-speaking world and one of the most promising in the world. On the one hand, a large part of the world’s leading experts in this field is located in Quebec (and these are the members of the CRIHN) and on the other, a very large number of institutional projects in the digital humanities (digital publishing, creation etc.) are emerging around these skills. The creation of the center is now a very urgent need, felt not only by the Quebec community but also by the entire international scientific community.

The CRIHN brings together researchers, including 6 Canada Research Chairs and 4 Institutional Chairs, distinguished by their thought, original practice and numerous achievements in digital humanities. Since it was created in the fall of 2013, the CRIHN has been designed inter-institutionally to reflect the maturity of digital humanities in Quebec.

The researchers involved in our center have a very high activity rate in the sector, the CRIHN being composed of professors at different stages of their careers (new assistant professors as tenured professors with more than thirty years of career) who were also involved in multiple collaborations around mainly dissemination activities, such as workshops, seminars and symposiums.
