Sally Chambers is Digital Humanities Research Coordinator at the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities. She holds a BA in Literature with Psychology, an MA in Cultural Studies and a postgraduate qualification in Information Services Management. In her PhD research, initially titled “From digital collections to digital scholarship: addressing the challenges of using digital cultural heritage collections in (digital) humanities research”, she explores to what extent digital cultural heritage collections (both digitised and born-digital) are currently being used in (digital) humanities research.

She is one of the instigators of an emerging Digital Research Lab at KBR, Royal Library of Belgium as part of a long-term collaboration with the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities.
