Registry of Digital Research Tools
Bamboo DiRT is a tool, service, and collection registry of digital research tools for scholarly use. Developed by Project Bamboo, Bamboo DiRT makes it easy for digital humanists and others conducting digital research to find and compare resources ranging from content management systems to music OCR, statistical analysis packages to mindmapping software. Bamboo DiRT by Project Bamboo is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. And Project Bamboo is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Project Bamboo is a multi-institutional, interdisciplinary effort that brings together humanities scholars, librarians, and information technologists to tackle the question: “How can we advance arts and humanities research through the development of shared technology services?” In September 2010, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation provided a $1.3 million grant to an international partnership of 10 universities to support the collaborative development of humanities research technologies.
Your contributions to Bamboo DiRT is welcome, with comments, rating feedback from everyone will make the registry a more valuable reference to locate quality tools and resources.
