The development of software to connect the Commons-In-A-Box (CBOX) social network platform (which is the basis of MLA Commons) to a Fedora-based institutional repository system. This combined system would be called Humanities Commons, a social network and repository system that would be made available for use by other scholarly societies.

The Modern Language Association (MLA) and the Columbia University Libraries/Information Services' Center for Digital Research and Scholarship (CDRS) are currently working together on the development of Humanities Commons, a platform for scholarly societies and related groups across the humanities, enabling members of those organizations to communicate, collaborate, and share their work with one another. Humanities Commons will link a federated group of social networking systems, modeled on MLA Commons, with a library-quality repository, modeled on Columbia's Academic Commons. We propose in this stage of the project to develop a working prototype for the user interface connecting the Commons with the repository system, which we are calling Humanities Commons Open Repository Exchange, or Humanities CORE. This interface will allow Commons members to upload, share, discover, retrieve, and archive digital work and other objects within the same system in which they are already collaborating with one another.
