Call for Collaborators: RSHHGG Lab

Call for Collaborators: RSHHGG Lab

We are looking for students, scholars, and/or researchers interested in contributing to a new DH project: The RSHHGG Lab. The RSHHGG Lab is an interactive online index of the Revue de la Société Haïtienne d’Histoire, de Géographie et de Géologie, developed in collaboration with National Digital Initiatives’ LABS at the Library of Congress and with the help of the Société Haïtienne d’Histoire, de Géographie et de Géologie. The RSHHGG Lab is slated to go live in February 2018 via labs.loc.gov.

The site will feature a fully searchable index of over 90 years of publications, as well as data visualizations, article annotations, and notes. We hope that the index will increase the impact of this important publication by facilitating the work of scholars of Haiti in the US, Haiti, and beyond. The site also aims to foster collaboration and new partnerships by connecting scholars and researchers of all levels and locales. To that end, we are looking for collaborators interested in contributing short (~300 words) article annotations to the site.

Please contact Chelsea Stieber (stieber@cua.edu) if you would like to collaborate. More information (guidelines, formatting, sample annotations) will be provided. Please also feel free to circulate among your own networks.

For more information on the project, you can see a short talk Chelsea gave in July 2017 at the National Digital Initiatives’ conference Collections As Data: https://youtu.be/OJWMHzgCu3c?t=6h35m13s
