An Open Source Approach to Digital Humanities

The Texas A&M University College of Liberal Arts is working to develop a "telescope of the mind:" a digital research environment based on open standards and a robust open source toolset to allow faculty to create extensive and reusable digital collections capable of advancing research in digital humanities (i.e., the academic semantic web). This session covers the constraints we are working within and the open source technologies we are applying. We will also touch on some of the open source packages we are producing.
