MetadataShow full item record
The Digital Humanities Data Curation (DHDC) institute series is a collaborative initiative led by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities in cooperation with the Women Writers Project, and the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS), at the University of Illinois UrbanaChampaign. DHDC is designed to serve as an opportunity for humanities scholars with all levels of expertise—from beginners to the most advanced—to receive guidance in understanding the role of data curation in enriching humanities research projects. By the conclusion of each institute, participants will be adept in formulating solutions for existing challenges and will be able to document their data curation strategies in the form of a data curation plan and strategic risk assessment. The aggregation of resources and responses from across the institute’s three events will also create a cohort of scholars focused on discipline-specific curation practices and skills.
