This presentation will provide guidance for those considering the creation of a digital humanities (DH) lab, as well as for those with a current functional DH lab. The Digital Scholars Studio at Florida International University (FIU) was created in 2016 with the purpose of providing needed technology and collaborative space for researchers and students. We will explore the challenges experienced by restricted space and budget and discuss how we resolved these specific limitations before continuing with an in-depth look at programming and usage of DH software and tools. We will take a look at a few current projects our researchers are working on in their fields in order to better understand current needs and interests in using DH labs and the technologies most preferred by researchers and students. The hope is that this presentation will engender a lively discussion and sharing of thoughts, questions, and experiences that attendees will find useful. Participants should leave with a good understanding of what is essential in the development of a DH lab and how to increase usage and interest in a DH lab while conquering the technical aspects of creating and running one with all the associated technology and applications.
