Scholarly Repositories and the Humanities

–(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?
