Title

Asking Questions and Building a
Research Agenda for Digital Scholarship

Subject

Digital humanities

Description

One of the major issues facing humanities scholars is access to data for reuse or repurposing. Data used in the humanities encompasses the broad and diverse humanities disciplines. The types of research conducted in a digital environment are based on each discipline's history and methods of practice. Friedlander, however, believes there is sufficient common ground among the individual disciplines that a shared infrastructure of tools, services, and collections would be cost and energy efficient, as well as producing fresh insights and opportunities for greater collaboration. She describes the technical tools and applications for accessing data, and identifies critical questions for researchers regarding the scale of their projects and networks of communication. Friedlander persuasively argues that the size or type of institution is not as important as the shared values and standard protocols among the collaborating groups.
