Check out this article in Internet and Higher Education:

Marc Langston, James Tyler, "Linking to journal articles in an online teaching environment: The persistent link, DOI, and OpenURL." The Internet and Higher Education, Volume 7, Issue 1, 1st Quarter 2004, Pages 51-58, ISSN 1096-7516,

The growing availability of online journal literature and the license agreements that make such literature useable in an academic environment present educators opportunities for using journal articles in online teaching. The use of online journal articles avoids logistical challenges associated with the use of printed copies of journal articles, particularly when assembling course packs. Technological developments have improved the reliability of linking to journal articles via the World Wide Web. Three linking methods are described: persistent linking services available in online databases and journal collections; the digital object identifier (DOI), and OpenURL. Faculty who wish to reliably integrate links to journal articles in online instruction should be familiar with these linking methods.


Project Reviews & Your Project Ideas

Project Reviews

Great work on your project reviews! You found many fascinating projects, and did an excellent job of capturing the breadth and diversity of digital humanities. We uploaded your reviews to the website, and you can find them on here (you'll need to log in). Please let me know if any links are broken, or if I missed anyone. 

If you're interested in having your comments communicated to the project that you reviewed, please let us know! Most people who operate in this space are always hungry for feedback, and it can be a great way to start a conversation with scholars who share your interests. We can talk about how to package your review, and do our best to help make the introduction.

Your Project Ideas

We want to hear more about your project ideas! As you start thinking through your project/grant application ideas this weekend, please post your thoughts in the "Project Ideas" discussion thread on the course website. You need not have everything figured out yet -- even broad outlines is fine. We'd really like you to start thinking (and talking to us) about:

  1. What are your data, and how will you acquire them?
  2. What tools, infrastructure, and/or support will you need to implement your project? (e.g. web server, supercomputer, etc.)
  3. What kind of products do you want to produce, and how do you want to disseminate/communicate those products?
