With funding from a Digital Humanities Advancement Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), ARL researched and prototyped ways to index and discover digital humanities (DH) projects on the open web, using tools developed by SHARE. With the continued growth of digital humanities scholarship—reflected in academic job opportunities, conference programming, library services, and college and university courses—accessing and discovering the output of this scholarship remains a challenge.
The project ran through August 2019 and produced several reports, including a guide to using Webscraper.io to scrape metadata from DH sites and collections, particularly those using the popular Omeka platform, and a final white paper.
