Talk: Tools, Scaling and Support

The session today on Omeka raised questions we have been wrestling with on support and scaling for tools in the digital humanities.  What has been working and what has not?  How do you decide on what tools, versions, plugins, etc. support and when to upgrade?  Do you make exception for certain sets of users or use cases?  DH tools are often experimental, so what is reasonable to support and push and how far can we stretch it?  How has it been when you have had to say no?

About Matt Shoemaker

Currently I am exploring on ways for Temple University to become involved with digital humanities through the library and managing the library's Drupal website. Previously I was the Director of Digital Collections and Systems at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania where I built and managed the Digital Center for Americana. I am also currently the archival consultant for the "Dungeons and Dragons: A Documentary" film project and am interested in using games and primary sources for history education.
