Scholar's Dashboard (Web Resources)
Title: Scholar's Dashboard
Author: Andy Schocket
Abstract: Welcome The Scholars’ Dashboard project was a series of three two-day workshops, teaming humanities scholars, librarians, and technologists in innovative application development to optimize use of humanities collections from the OhioLINK Digital Resource Commons (DRC). The DRC was a 500,000 item open access collection from Ohio academic and cultural heritage organizations. Workshops allowed researchers and scholars to specify features needed to rapidly expand DRC functionality. This model will then be used as a magnet for further digital humanities collections, as scholars, librarians, and archivists contribute collections in order to benefit from the Scholars’ Dashboard design and capabilities. The workshop produced technical requirements for a Scholar’s Dashboard. These should be considered for any online digital humanities repository.
