The Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Data Enhanced Virtual Lab (HASS DEVL/RDC) establishes workflows across national capabilities and research institutions for a more cohesive and interoperable landscape.
As the HASS infrastructure landscape is characterised by high value but fragmented data, tools and services, the approach will use high-value engaged exemplars to focus and drive interoperability of data, tools, and services for researchers working across social sciences, linguistics, and historical studies.
The project will also give the HASS community the ability to publish their own tools for use through the Virtual Laboratory, Tinker. All activities within the project will be supported by skill-building opportunities and community building.
The project involves partners coming together from national capabilities and research institutions across Australia to create the new tools and services.
Who is this project for?
- HASS researchers and students
- Collecting sector such as galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM) professionals
- eResearch professionals
- Policy and decision-makers
- Anyone working in or interested in the HASS space
What does this project enable?
- Increased interoperability between existing HASS infrastructure, and provide a online ‘storefront’ to existing and new tools and services
- Lowering barriers to entry for HASS infrastructure through the development of a single entry point website, Tinker. This now enables HASS researchers who have novice to intermediate skills access to working with digital tools and data
- Through community engagement, the project has built connections between institutionally, professionally or geographically isolated researchers engaging in data-driven research
- More joined up data landscape
- Data curation for better reuse, reproduction, and publishing of research data sets
- Game changing skills and training activities
