The Digital Scholarship Group is now accepting proposals for the next round of DRS Project Toolkit development. The DRS Project Toolkit is a user-friendly set of tools for building digital projects and publications using the Digital Repository Service (DRS). With the DRS Project Toolkit users can create exhibits, galleries, and playlists that draw digital materials dynamically from the DRS.
Development for DRS Project Toolkit will be a collaborative endeavor and a great opportunity to experiment with publishing your project’s materials. If you have a project idea, we’d love to hear from you! Just answer a few questions about your project to apply.
Examples of successful projects from the pilot phase of the DRS Project Toolkit include:
- Graham Arader “Picturing the World” Gallery, University Libraries (Coming soon!)
- A Proud Past [Boston-Bouve College, 1913-1981], University Archives and Special Collections
- Interviews with Jewish Latin American Writers and Artists, Professor Stephen A. Sadow (Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures)
Accepted projects will partner with the DSG and DRS teams to use the DRS Project Toolkit to securely store their project materials in the DRS and create a customized WordPress site to publish those materials on the web.
If you have questions, the DSG staff are glad to meet and discuss project proposals before the deadline; please contact us at DSG@neu.edu to set up a meeting.
Please visit the DRS Resources page for more information about the DRS. If you don’t think the DRS Project Toolkit is right for your project, but you are still interested in securely storing project files in the DRS, contact Library-Repository-Team@neu.edu.
