A one week institute for twelve participants on the principles of humanities-centered tool design, development, and implementation, followed by a year of development support and evaluation.

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University proposes a reprise of One Week | One Tool for summer 2013. Another Week | Another Tool: A Digital Humanities Barnraising will once again bring together a group of twelve digital scholars, students, librarians, and museum professionals of diverse disciplinary backgrounds and practical experience to CHNM to build something useful and useable in seven days. Not for the faint of heart, a one-day course of training in the principles of open source software development will be followed by an intense six days of doing and a year of continued community engagement, development, testing, dissemination, and evaluation. Comprised of designers and programmers as well as project managers and outreach specialists, the group will conceive a tool, outline a roadmap, develop and disseminate a modest prototype, lay the ground work for building an open source community, and make first steps toward securing the project's long-term sustainability.
