–(Proposals and areas of interest from participants as indicated on the THATCamp registration form.)–
I’d like to explore the question of whether individual scholarly repositories have a place in humanities scholarship. Such repositories are becoming increasingly popular in the sciences and, to some extent, the social sciences through services such as Mendeley (www.mendeley.com), Papers (www.mekentosj.com/papers), and Colwiz (www.colwiz.com). Some possible sub-topics for discussion: Do humanities scholars use such services? Are there missing features that would make such services more attractive? How could such services fit into a library’s technology offerings?
