Mission + People

Our Mission

The Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities (IDAH) serves as the hub for digital arts and humanities on the Indiana University Bloomington campus.

IDAH supports faculty, students, librarians, and technologists who engage with digital methods and tools by fostering networks among people and campus services with theoretical, disciplinary, and technical expertise.

Our focus on digital approaches to research, pedagogy, and artistic practices extends to our outreach efforts, ranging from discussion groups and lecture series to one-on-one consultations. We assist our partners as they explore digital tools, create and curate digital collections, pursue internal and external funding, and preserve their work through publication.


The Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities was initiated in 2007 by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research at Indiana University, Bloomington.

The IDAH offices and conference room, located on the first floor of the East Tower of the Wells Library, serves as a campus hub for individual consultations with faculty, as well as for IDAH presentations, special topic seminars, and IU's branch of the HASTAC Scholar's program.
