The Digital Humanities portal provides access to information sources of institutes in research area III of the CAS. Both specialized electronic information sources fully accessible online, electronic sources accessible only from the individual workplaces of the institutes and information sources yet to be digitized are presented. The portal further serves as a platform for the aggregation and presentation of information on current developments in the area of digital humanities in the Czech Republic and abroad.
