"In mid-February during the American Library Association (ALA) Midwinter Conference in Denver, Colorado, the SHARE team will convene approximately 40 invited experts in digital humanities (DH) practice, librarians, publishers, and managers of disciplinary and institutional repositories and related, large-scale, digital library projects to work on challenges in discovering DH scholarship. While some of those challenges are well-known—for example, the tendency for DH projects to live on stand-alone websites rather than in repositories, and the related complication of identifying and describing component parts of the work—the interventions and services to address them within the scholars’ workflow are less documented and understood. Through a combination of lightning talks and active working sessions, participants will collectively define key issues around DH project metadata, and how SHARE’s metadata-harvesting technology can integrate with the world of DH registries, identifiers, and repositories to improve discovery for this important area of scholarship.
The workshop will be facilitated by Nancy Maron of BlueSky to BluePrint, and the participants’ collective work will inform the next phases of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Digital Humanities Advancement Grant “Integrating Digital Humanities into the Web of Scholarship with SHARE.” The next phases of the project include site visits by project team members to DH centers (either based in libraries or not) and prototyping discovery tools using the SHARE harvester with institutional and/or disciplinary repositories or registries."
