Bibliography of Digital Art History

The bibliography of Digital Art History is an ongoing project created by the Digital Art History Lab to provide researchers with a springboard to the literature of Digital Art History and, to a lesser extant, the Digital Humanites.  The most updated version of the bibliography can be found in our Zotero Library page.
