Announcing Digital Research Tricks

topc-1243590Welcome to the inaugural post of the “Digital Research Tricks” blog.

Whether you’re a scientist using a telescope or critter-camera, or historian, genealogist, or archeologist using a point and shoot camera or cellphone to capture your data, digital technologies allow us to capture thousands of images at little to no cost. Most digital humanities sites focus on material that is already digitized and offer little help to those who have to produce their own images and metadata.

This blog is different. Over the coming months, we will focus on the ideas, best-practices, tools, workflows, and costs associated with photographing / digitizing research. Sometimes the blogs will focus on particular disciplines. Other times, we’ll tackle challenges common to multiple fields. In the process, we will begin building a common multidisciplinary research technology hardware and software guide. Readers should be aware that, unless otherwise stated, we have no affiliation with the products discussed, and we receive no compensation for their promotion.
