Archiving the Digital Humanities – Digital Humanities at the University of Cincinnati and Scholar@UC

What are the digital repository and longer term preservation use cases for the Digital Humanities?  Are these use cases different or parallel to use cases from other fields?  Are there best practices to be incorporated into Digital Humanities projects – when longer term preservation is desired?

Scholar@UC is in production as the institutional repository for the University of Cincinnati.  Partnered by the University of Cincinnati Libraries and IT@UC, it is sustained by a commitment to digital preservation.  It is based on open source software furthered by Project Hydra.   Let’s collaboratively explore how a digital repository such as Scholar@UC can actively support the Digital Humanities.
