The development of three tools that will aid in the dissemination of research and teaching materials for humanities scholars.

ScholarPress is a suite of tools that will enable humanities scholars far more control of how they teach and present their research. We will develop three tools: Courseware, Researcher, and Vitaware. Courseware will allow instructors to easily publish course websites that incorporate digital resources and encourage critical analysis that is central to the humanities. Researcher will help humanities scholars collaborate by making it easy to aggregate and cite resources from various online collection services. Vitaware will provide scholars with a "live" feed of their traditional and digital scholarship. These tools will help manage digital identities-scholarly production that is visible online through course websites, blogs, and CVs-that are becoming more central to work in the humanities. In short, ScholarPress will lower the intimidating technical barrier for humanists to thoughtfully engage with new media and to facilitate digital discourse in the humanities.
