  3. Data Management Plan Recommendation for Social Science and Humanities Funding Agencies

    Title: Data Management Plan Recommendation for Social Science and Humanities Funding Agencies
    Creator: Sapach, Sonja
    Description: This recommendation document has been developed by the RDC Metrics Group (RMG) as part of a task laid out during the 2014 Digital Infrastructure Leadership Council summit. The overall goal of the RMG was to report on ways of evaluating research data management plans (DMPs) in order to encourage a culture of digital scholarly stewardship. In order to accomplish this, the group conducted a survey of best practices on how data management plans can be prepared and evaluated, while exploring how stewardship can be encouraged, including ways that it can be recognized academically so as to change the culture of research data management.

  8. John B. Smith Archive - Periods and Themes Bundle 2 (1970-1984)

    Title: John B. Smith Archive - Periods and Themes Bundle 2 (1970-1984)
    Creator: John B. Smith
    Description: A bundle of the works of John B. Smith corresponding to the period of 1970-1984, provided by John B. Smith from his personal collection. In this period, Smith had a joint appointment at Penn State University in the English department and Computation Center. His instructional duties were a blend of English and interdisciplinary subjects. English courses included literature and composition, while the interdisciplinary courses blended science and humanities concerns in courses like Science and Human Values. Smith's contributions to the digital humanities expanded in the 1970s, in part due to his role in the Computing Center as the applications staff member focused on computers and the liberal arts. Over the course of the decade, he developed a three-course sequence on technology and methods for Liberal Arts students; in 1977, he discontinued his Computation Center appointment to teach it half-time in the College of Liberal Arts. Other notable activities include natural language processing techniques, computer-assisted of literature and oral performances, and bibliography systems and practices. He also became interested in literary critical theory, particularly in exploring it as a distinct mode of intellectual inquiry. The files provided here are a combination of PDFs scanned from original texts, with .tif versions of the relevant figures and illustrations. All originals are held by John B. Smith.
