This article discusses the characteristics of various reference digital resources of the modern humanities. We have identified three main digital resources: a digital library resource, a multimedia digital system, and a multimedia encyclopedic database. These important resources are involved in creating a modern information society. In this context, the Ukrainian Literary Encyclopedia of the Shevchenko Institute of Literature of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the crea­tion of an independent multimedia encyclopedic database are considered.

Keywords: digital Humanities, digital library resources, multimedia systems, mu­lti­media encyclopedic database, Ukrainian Literary Encyclopedia.
