In December 2010, the Outreach Committee of the ACH (Association for Computers and the Humanities) will draft open letters to the funders of digital humanities projects, advocating for the establishment of data curation or management plans and open source / open access guidelines for grant-funded DH.
We will share drafts of the letters for public comment before circulating them to funders. In the meantime, we're hoping you'll help inform the process by sharing your ideas and examples below -- positive or negative -- of the relationship of digital humanities projects to open source, open access, and data curation or management.
We've also set up a Google Doc which can be edited anonymously: http://is.gd/i6DNw
What should we be sure to address in these letters?
Many thanks on behalf of the ACH Outreach Committee,
