Doing Digital Humanities in Philadelphia PhillyDH is an active organization/interest group with a high proportion of library, archives, and museum members. It conducts most of its business via its Google group, which you can access here. The group archives provide an idea of the range of activities it promotes and supports. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/phillydigitalhumanities
