During April the team has continued working on the Humanities Arts and Social Sciences Data Enhanced Virtual Laboratory (HASS DEVL).
Planning is continuing and we’re making the most of partnerships across the community, connecting to related projects at the Australian Academy of Humanities and Council of Australian University Libraries.
The team are gathering for a project architecture workshop on Tuesday 1 May, which will firm up the design of the workbench environment for digital tools. The team is interested in making sure the workbench interface is accessible and user-friendly for the research community that we are supporting.
The data curation team are working with the National Library of Australia on processing and migration of the Australian Government Gazettes dataset. This process has documented the discoverability of data, the availability of human-readable and machine-readable data and organisational issues with generating and sharing the data. The team are testing the process through this migration, before applying it to other identified reference datasets.
The skills and training team has been gathering information about related skill-building opportunities that are already available and making sure that we aren’t duplicating effort.
Finally, the first of the 2018 series of Digital Humanities Pathways events will be held in Perth on 18 May at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre. Read more about this event and register here.
