Integrating Digital Humanities into the Web of Scholarship with SHARE: An Exploration of Requirements

Project: Research project

Project Details


A series of activities to adapt the SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) platform that enhances the discoverability of scholarship for use by humanities faculty and librarians. This project will develop a plan to optimize the SHARE aggregator and data set for digital humanities in consultation with scholars, institutions, and centers. A digital humanities project may produce more than one book or article manuscript, each published on a different publisher's website, any number of pre-prints on institutional repositories or pre-print servers, data sets and code books on Dryad or Figshare, and text mining or cleaning scripts on github. Such project components may be housed semi-permanently in web-publishing platforms like Omeka without formal integration with library discovery systems or other services to link them to similar projects. The SHARE platform links scholarly activity across the research lifecycle and makes it available as enhanced, free, open metadata. The project team will administer a survey, conduct focus groups, and engage with the humanities community to detail requirements and prototype applications for digital scholarship curation.
