How To Curate Digital Collections and Aggregations | DH Curation Guide | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

Robin Good: A valuable resource for anyone interested in the creation, organization and preservation of digital collections for the humanities, is this curated selection of resources and citations made available by the DH Curation Guide.

 

"The DH Curation Guide is a compilation of articles that address aspects of data curation in the digital humanities.

 

The goal of the DH Curation Guide is to direct readers to trusted resources with enough context from expert editors and the other members of the research community to indicate to how these resources might help them with their own data curation challenges."

 

DH Curation Guide: http://guide.dhcuration.org/index.html

 

 

Of particular interest in this collection:

 

The concept of collection from the user’s perspective

by H. L. Lee.

 

A framework for contextual information in digital collections

Clip Any Web Page, Text or Link and Organize Into Collections with Evernote WebClipper

Clip Any Web Page, Text or Link and Organize Into Collections with Evernote WebClipper | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you need to do research on a specific topic or need to easily collect and organize notes, web clippings and other content from the web into shareable "public" collections, you may want to consider Evernote (and in particular its Chrome extension and its Web Clipper feature).

Den Nicholson, has a short but useful tutorial just on this, with a couple of short video clips that can give you immediately an idea of whether Evernote could be a good addition to your curator's toolkit.

 

Useful. 7/10

Curation Approaches: Sprints vs Marathons

Curation Approaches: Sprints vs Marathons | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

Robin Good: It's true, when you create a "curated" collection, it's generally done in one of two possible approaches:

 

a) the "sprint", where due to time-sensitive issues lots of elevant items are collected in a short period of time. 

 

b) the "marathon", where relevant collection items are slowly but steadily collected over time.

 

This short article on the Bundlr blog acknowledges this typical behavior, as well as identifying some relevant examples and characteristics. 

 

Insightful. 7/10
