Diviner, A Digital Platform

The development of a digital platform to assist small historical societies and other local humanities institutions, including public media organizations, in curating their federated collections on the web.

North Country Public Radio is developing Diviner, an innovative digital platform for organizing and sharing humanities materials with the public, and encouraging exploration and personal interaction with that content. Our proposal is to package Diviner, the digital platform, and make it available to other humanities and public media organizations. During the grant period we will evaluate our current platform, develop new elements, and finally package all elements of the platform into free WordPress elements to be shared publicly in the Plugin Directory. During the grant period we will develop Diviner into a configurable platform useful for other organizations, through staff development meetings, meetings with our advisory board on how best to package the platform for public use, meetings with our humanities collaborators to design new features, and periods of testing and quality assurance for all aspects of the platform.
