  • RCAB will be validating deliverables as appropriate
  • Are we aiming at the communities that use and develop high sophisticated digital tools for digital humanity research? The first group is more like what we do in EHRI (focusing on metadata) and the second might be more like Clarin (search tools related to document content). Those groups might not be mutually exclusive, but they may have different requirements. F.i. the first group could be happy with any form of digital metadata even only at collection level, and might also be interested in traveling to a local reading room to have a look at one item that could be of his interest. The second group might be interested in larger datasets and wants to have digital metadata in combination with the documents itself.
  • Think about the ways in which a researcher might want to use digital content but is currently inhibited from doing so because of – technical limitations, links not working, unclear licensing, paywalls, search engines not being efficient enough, content being spread around different places, content being accessible or not being downloadable, or simply the lack of digitised material.

    • 18. Researchers and Content What kinds of research communities in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciencescommunities does your content serve? What kinds of communities within the Humanities and the Social Sciences would welike to serve within eCloud? Do different subjects approach the discovery and use of content differently? Does behaviour change for different types of content / format? (E.g. journals,images, audio/visual, manuscripts, historical records etc) Is multidisciplinarity a drawback in interacting with content and if so, in what ways?
    • 19. Discovery and Access of Content How do users discover content appropriate to their research? What are they keyproblems they face at this stage? What about catalogue information which is not available in digital form? What about rights restrictions permitting access? What are the finding aids provided and how do users interact with them? Do different kinds of users interact differently with different kinds of finding aids? What are the main problems encountered by users regarding access and privacy? What are your views on user generated content? What are the key problems with the terminology researchers use to access content?
    • 20. Use of ContentWhat do researchers usually do once they have gained access to the content they need?How do they annotate and organize their material? What could be done to facilitate thisprocess fot them?What new tools do you think could assist researchers most in navigating themselveswithin your collections and making the most of them?Sharing of ContentHow do researchers share, redistribute and disseminate content? What are the mainpitfalls in this?What are your views on crowd sourcing and social media tools?Curation of ContentIn what ways can researchers enrich, through annotation and scholarly critical editions,content?
    • 21. By the end of the project what are the 5 keybarriers to using content for Humanities andSocial Sciences research that we shouldovercome?
