How to end your DH project

Martin Holmes
Dear colleague,

Apologies for cross-posting.

In April 2016, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of
Canada awarded an a major grant to Endings: Concluding, Archiving, and
Preserving Digital Projects for Long-Term Usability, a project exploring
practical answers to the questions of how DH projects end, and where
they should be archived in order maintain the dynamic features that make
them readable, searchable, and even interactive. (See Project Endings
<> and
<> for examples of our ongoing work.)

Working partly from four case studies (University of Victoria DH
projects), we are developing tool kits to aid the DH community in
implementing best practices in ending and archiving. Having learned as
much as we can from our own successes and failures, we want to gain
insight from a wide variety of DH projects through a multiple-choice survey.

We hope that you will be willing to share your experience in ending and
archiving with us. You may be acquainted with some team members; you
should feel under no obligation to respond to the survey for this reason.

The survey should take ten to fifteen minutes to complete. Please click
here to begin:


With thanks from the Project Endings team.
