The Scholarís Dashboard project is a series of workshops teaming humanities scholars, librarians ,and technologists in discussions to consider major challenges in the digital humanities: how can we best work across multiple digitized or born-digital collections? What tools, interface, and features would best help humanists explore digital collections?
Our theme for the May 9 and 10, 2013 workshop is "identity and social networks." How can we best analyze and visualize the social dimensions of the objects in our collections, of their creators, and their content?
Weíre not looking only for humanists and librarians who have extensive experience in the digital humanities, but also for those curious and willing to talk through the challenges that we face in making Ohioís digital resources accessible and useful to humanities scholars.
In a previous workshop, we had a hands-on experience with Omeka. For this workshop, we will have representatives from firms working with Google, Amazon, others to see what products they might be able to present that might serve the needs of scholars, libraries and archives, and the general public. Industry partnerships have already resulted in such cooperative efforts as Google's support of Paper Machines and Amazon's support of the 1000 Genomes project.
This workshop will be held at Ohio Supercomputer Centerís Bale Conference Room and Theater on April 9 and 10. Participants will be provided with a parking pass and up to $100 in travel reimbursement. Participants must be either Ohio residents or be affiliated with an Ohio college, university, or library.
To participate, please send the following information to Andy Schocket, project manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org: name, C.V., and a brief statement of interest. Should there be more applicants than is availability, applicants will be chosen so as to provide a range of interests and experience. Please also direct any questions to Andy Schocket.
The Scholarís Dashboard is funded through a grant from the Office of Digital Humanities of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed as a result of this workshop do not necessarily reflect those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
