Make session: Registry of Digital Projects in History of Science

As current chair of the Technology and Communication Commission, I propose that we brainstorm as a group and come up with a list of digital projects in the discipline. This will have two uses: First, we’ll use it to feature the best and most innovative projects on a new page of the HSS site: HSS Digital. We’ll classify those projects into different categories so that we can feature important innovations in the digital realm as well as provide newbies as well as digital veterans with tools and help dealing with everything from data management plans and funding to Python tutorials and the like.

Second, we’ll turn this list into a historical registry of projects classified and updated constantly in the IsisCB. The IsisCB will then begin to offer information to people about non-print resources, ranging from digital archives to blogs and exhibits.
