5.8 Prototypes for Enhancing the Discoverability of Digital Humanities Scholarship

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) funded planning grant, "Integrating Digital Humanities into the Web of Scholarship," sought to identify ways that existing tools and services could make it easier to discover and link the many distributed digital humanities assets created by scholars. Through this planning grant, we uncovered a number of common challenges and a variety of solutions to supporting the appropriate discoverability and stewardship of digital humanities research. Though best practices and standards for stewarding digital humanities projects are limited or unclear, tools and technologies to automate metadata extraction and visualize distributed assets are a useful step to enhance discoverability. This panel will report on both what we learned and, specifically, two prototypes created during the course of the grant: the targeted pilot projects focusing on identifying and then extracting descriptive metadata from Omeka sites and a dashboard created from NEH grant information. We will solicit feedback from attendees, seeking to better understand community needs for the discovery of digital humanities scholarship.
