Digital humanities is the spread and sharing of experiences, obstacles, happiness, culture, ideas and other characteristics of humans through text, photos and videos posted online, serving as a virtual representation of their life. Technology has become an efficient way to access information. Through technology it has become easier to find prior references that could be impossible to access if they weren’t saved and shared. For instance, if there was only one hard copy of The Constitution how would we be able to gain our historical knowledge? Because of the easy access provides, individuals can obtain the transcript of The Constitution in a matter of seconds.
Without the aid of digital humanities, individuals would find themselves searching through billions of files in order to find the documents or sources they’re looking for. It has become very convenient for individuals to easily access sources of accurate information from the past through the internet. For instance, in Guantánamo Public Memory Project, they have provided different information regarding different experiences people have encountered while at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Having this collection in one piece of writing makes it easier for people to access it through the web. Digital humanities has become a great source in today’s life and is a great tool for exposing individuals to information from all around the world.
