Although, I've shared some of this information with you in private, I thought I would post some of these resources for the larger DH community (never too early to start preparing them for <a href="http://caribbean2012.thatcamp.org/">THATCampCaribe</a>!):</p> <p>The Caribbean Association of Libraries, ACURIL is an invaluable resource for connections in the area: <a href="http://acuril.uprrp.edu/" rel="nofollow">http://acuril.uprrp.edu/</a> They are doing an excellent job, and they acknowledge the role of new technologies in the future of Caribbean archival and scholarly communications work.</p> <p>To get an overview of the present state of libraries across the Caribbean region, a good book to read is <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Caribbean-Libraries-Century-Changes-Challenges/dp/1573873012">Caribbean Libraries in the 21st Century</a>. The book covers mostly the English-speaking Caribbean, but most of the issues are relevant to the other linguistic areas.</p> <p>For Haiti in particular, an invaluable source of information and networking is the Haitian Studies Association: <a href="http://www.haitianstudies.umb.edu/" rel="nofollow">http://www.haitianstudies.umb.edu/</a></p> <p>As Jen Serventi pointed out, Brown U. is a key player here. They happen to have the largest collection of Haiti materials outside of Haiti. The contact there is <a href="http://library.brown.edu/sr/profile.php?id=30">Dominique Coulombe</a>. I had the pleasure of meeting with her recently, and she is eager to work with that collection. Let me know if you're interested. The Department of Africana Studies there is also looking to make things happen. </p> JenniferServenti on "Digital Humanities in Haiti and in developing countries" http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/digital-humanities-in-haiti-and-in-developing-countries#post-1286 Sun, 17 Jul 2011 03:27:30 +0000 JenniferServenti 1286@http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/ <p>Immediately following the earthquake, the John Carter Brown Library put together a digital project called Remember Haiti.

What kinds of collaborative projects (with local institutions) are most useful or practical? What works well, and what doesn't. What are the most feasible ways to bring DH projects and access (or basic library training and development) to countries with low technical infrastructure and connectivity, and high levels of poverty? </p> <p>I know of several initiatives focused on providing open access to scholarly or cultural resources in Haiti, including</p> <p>Digital Library of the Caribbean: <a href="http://dloc.com/" rel="nofollow">http://dloc.com/</a><br /> Libraries Without Borders--Haiti: <a href="http://www.librarieswithoutborders.org/?cat=32" rel="nofollow">http://www.librarieswithoutborders.org/?cat=32</a><br /> eGranary Digital Library: <a href="http://www.widernet.org/egranary/" rel="nofollow">http://www.widernet.org/egranary/</a></p> <p>and a previous DH Answers post on Haiti: <a href="http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/best-dh-tools-for-best-access-in-haiti#post-283" rel="nofollow">http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/best-dh-tools-for-best-access-in-haiti#post-283</a></p> <p>What roles are there for digital humanities in Haiti and developing countries, and how to we help it happen? </p> rania on "Best DH Tools For Best Access in Haiti" http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/best-dh-tools-for-best-access-in-haiti#post-1121 Thu, 14 Apr 2011 08:52:36 +0000 rania 1121@http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/ <p>The post is written in very a good manner and it entails many useful information for me.

Partners include the Archives Nationale d'Haïti, Bibliothèque Nationale d'Haïti, and Bibliothèque Haïtienne des Pères du Saint-Esprit. The dLOC group continually works with issues of access and we'd love to work with you on a Haiti-specific project (you might already know Brooke Wooldridge, the dLOC Coordinator, since she visited Duke fairly recently).</p> <p>I'd also strongly agree that questions on the digital divide and access are key to all digital humanities work. The questions are fundamental to concerns on developing support for digital accessibility and machine/system interoperability, as well as for how to do humanities work with changes from digital technologies, which requires a non-reductive approach. </p> Cathyd on "Best DH Tools For Best Access in Haiti" http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/best-dh-tools-for-best-access-in-haiti#post-283 Thu, 30 Sep 2010 19:52:09 +0000 Cathyd 283@http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/ <p>A colleague from our Haiti Lab at the Franklin Humanities Institute asked my advice about the best ways to create a library of low res books that students in Haiti can access easily--thumb drives with low resolution pdf's, tagging low data "canonical" texts and archives (literary, historical) from internet cafes, excellent translations between English and Haitian Kreyol, etc. This is the beginning of a conversation, obviously, but I'm so thrilled for DHAnswers (and delighted you posted this on the HASTAC site) that I thought I'd get this local conversation going for my colleagues by putting it out to our community and collecting and passing on responses. I know that questions of digital divide and digital access are not as key to all work in the Digital Humanities but I also know that many in our community have thought deeply about how we translate work in ways that make it accessible. Thanks for any ideas, leads, sources, experts, anything anyone wants to contribute to this vital conversation. </p>
