Summary/Abstract: Library and information science has always had a close relationship with applied linguistics. The article introduces the roots, results and emblematic projects of Hungarian digital humanities – a discipline described as new and dynamically developing –, starting from the already established and accepted connection points between the two fields of study. The paper provides details on the goals, educational and research activities, and international connections of the Centre for Digital Humanities, founded in 2017, in the orbit of the Institute of Library and Information Science of the Faculty of Humanities at Eötvös Loránd University. After listing selected European endeavours in the field of digital humanities which generated large-scale professional cooperation (most of these aimed at studying, exhibiting and archiving cultural heritage), the article outlines the priority topics of digital humanities, to serve as vision and future goals for the field. Lastly, the paper emphasises the major domestic developments, and analyses the issues related to the digitization and online management of public collections, mainly those of libraries.
