Humanities CORE

Further development of Humanities CORE, a repository framework that allows humanities discipline-based communities to preserve and share products of scholarship and teaching.

The Modern Language Association and the Columbia University Libraries will augment the work of an NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant, in which we built a prototype social repository, Humanities CORE, and connected it to MLA Commons, a social networking platform that enables humanists to communicate, collaborate, and share their digital scholarship. While the Start-Up Grant focused on the proof-of-concept and infrastructure framework, this phase will concentrate on facilitating increased interdisciplinary work, collaboration, and data-sharing for humanities scholars—and on enhancing and promoting the professional benefits of making such work available to a broader public. The assessment of user interaction, workflows, and platform impact will be vital to the early stages of this production implementation of CORE in a federated Humanities Commons network. The project will also address research questions regarding the benefits of inter-organizational collaboration implied by CORE.
