"Forging Our Cultural Commonwealth: The Importance of Digital Curation in the Digital Humanities"

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Digital Humanities on December 4th, 2015

Alex Poole's dissertation "Forging Our Cultural Commonwealth: The Importance of Digital Curation in the Digital Humanities" is available from the Carolina Digital Repository.

Here's an excerpt:

This exploratory qualitative study centered on the salience of digital curation to the digital humanities. A case study predicated upon semi-structured interviews, it explored the creation, use, storage, and planned reuse of data by 45 interviewees involved with nineteen Office of Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant (SUG) projects. Similarly, the study sought to determine what digital curation skills had been employed in these projects and what digital curation skills project personnel felt were most important in doing such work. Interviewees grappled with challenges surrounding data, collaboration and communication, planning and project management, awareness and outreach, resources, and technology. This study sought to understand the existing practices and needs of those engaged in digital humanities work and how closely these practices and needs align with the digital curation literature. It established a baseline for future research in this area and suggested key skills for digital curation work in the digital humanities. Finally, it provided a learning model for guiding such education.

Harvard Launches State Copyright Resource Center

Posted in Copyright on December 3rd, 2015

Harvard's Office for Scholarly Communication has launched the State Copyright Resource Center.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

The State Copyright Resource Center aims to clarify the ambiguity around the copyright status of state-produced works. . . .

In brief, while the U.S. Copyright Act affirms that works produced by the U.S. federal government are ineligible for copyright protection (17 U.S.C. ยง 105), this law does not assert the same status for works created by state governments. As a result, many states assert a copyright interest in the surveys, reports, and other documents they produce, and many more lack clear legal guidance on the issue. This resource aims to gather the sources of law in each state to provide assistance to those seeking to make use of state-created works.
