  7. 7. Forming a community – providing information services DH course registry – Stef Scagliola Emerged from a local (Dutch) initiative – DARIAH community driven https://dh-registry.de.dariah.eu/ 160 courses/tagged, Where can I study? What do teach others?
  8. 8. Forming a community – providing information services DH project registry – a pilot Pilot for a proposal to CLARIAH, temporarily hosted by CEDAR (eHumanities) http://www.dh-projectregistry.org/projects BETA
  9. 9. Demo - Sort by name - Sort by start date - No search function yet, but a lot of fields at display already - Tagging with TaDiRAH – partly
  10. 10. Trajectory to the Pilot I - Stef/Barbara – identified projects, contacted researchers, Google Form, Spreadsheet, 95 projects - Queries in NARCIS – www.narcis.nl - All projects for staff with an expertise combination of CS+H 320projects - ‘eHumanities’, ‘computational hum..’, ‘digital hum…’ + manual ~30 projects - Selected 152 projects for exporting information from NARCIS, use as much as possible Persistent identifiers! - Added remaining projects from ‘Barbara’s list’ – 211 projects in the pilot database
  11. 11. Trajectory to the Pilot II • Building a database scheme (Hendrik+) • Mapping to NOD/NARCIS • Start of cleaning/tagging (Barbara) • Moving to webserver • First demo interface • Project Baseline Statistics and Visualization (Almila) Kijkje achter de schermen Visual analytics

  15. 15. Could - Should • Harvest more projects (NARCIS, NWO, CORDIS, DiD, …) Seed+Expand, LOD • Tagging projects according to TaDiRAH • Search interfaces (visual enhanced) • Funding-project-study • Curate the projects in the pilot – entity disambiguation • Find a permanent home • Organize update • Organize curation
  16. 16. Feedback http://dh-projectregistry.org/projects Name/Institution/mail address Why do we need a DH project registry (Benelux, EU, …)? What do you think could be the function of such a registry? If so, what information you would like to be able to search for? Would you like to be able to curate your own project information? Andrea.scharnhorst@dans.knaw.nl
  17. 17. Why do we need a DH project registry (Benelux, EU, …)? - useful for a field in the making; - Project information is too much scattered What do you think could be the function of such a registry? - inform about past present projects to avoid redundancy - find experts and possible collaborators - get inspired - information source for students - support science policy about future funding If so, what information you would like to be able to search for? - project names, categories, persons, institutions, time, funding institutions Would you like to be able to curate your own project information? - yes, but I would prefer to have as much information as possible prefilled for me Discussion
