"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.

"The Digital Humanities Are Alive and Well and Blooming: Now What?"

Posted in Digital Humanities on September 18th, 2015

Nancy L. Maron has published "The Digital Humanities Are Alive and Well and Blooming: Now What?" in EDUCAUSE Review.

Here's an excerpt:

We sought to understand how institutions were handling DH projects: from conception to creation, then on to promotion and dissemination, and finally to ongoing support. Which units on campus currently "own" the different phases of support, and who should? Do the efforts contributed by different groups on one campus add up to a coherent plan for creating, supporting, and sustaining the impact of these works? And what sort of institutional model might best accomplish all of this?

NEH Grants: Humanities Collections and Reference Resources

Posted in Digital Humanities, Grants on May 12th, 2015

The National Endowment for the Humanities has released guidelines for Humanities Collections and Reference Resources grants.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

The Humanities Collections and Reference Resources (HCRR) program supports projects that provide an essential underpinning for scholarship, education, and public programming in the humanities. Thousands of libraries, archives, museums, and historical organizations across the country maintain important collections of books and manuscripts, photographs, sound recordings and moving images, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, art and material culture, and digital objects. Funding from this program strengthens efforts to extend the life of such materials and make their intellectual content widely accessible, often through the use of digital technology. Awards are also made to create various reference resources that facilitate use of cultural materials, from works that provide basic information quickly to tools that synthesize and codify knowledge of a subject for in-depth investigation.
