    DescriptionHistorians use computers for everything from word-processing and preparing presentations to more complex tasks such as the digitization of text and analysis of historical databases. Sonja Cameron and Sarah Richardson provide a jargon-free guide to the skills involved, offering step-by-step instructions, practical examples and guides to further reading. This book provides an excellent introduction both for students seeking to acquire IT skills and for other scholars and practitioners, including family and local historians.
