Type Id

URL

There is not only a field to add the URL but also a checkbox "Skip URL Validation". The reason is simple: in some cases the validation of the URL is not working. Therefore you can check the box and nevertheless enter your URL. Please be careful and check the URL before you check the box.

Lon and Lat

For showing the courses on the map the system needs the geocoordinates of the places. There are many tools for finding out the right numbers. This is one of them: itouchmap

Tadirah is a taxonomy for the Digital Humanities. Please provide at least one keyword for Activity, Technique and Object of your course.

Special user roles



DARIAH Moderator

The DARIAH Moderator (DM) is the contact and communications point for the National Moderators and is in charge of the overall operation, function and data in the DH Course Registry. Any technical or content-related questions entered through the “contact us” form will be forwarded to the DM.



National Moderator

That National Moderator (NM) will primarily be responsible for checking the data of their respective countries, correcting and supplementing it as needed, and adding DH courses/programs that are not yet featured in the registry. The NM will act as a contact and support point for Contributors from their respective countries. They will be able to directly invite colleagues to contribute to the registry, and approve registration requests. Furthermore, the NM will be responsible for checking if the data meets the specifications provided in the manual and/or is still valid. Any necessary changes should be communicated to the responsible Contributor. Orphaned entries (i.e. courses that are no longer curated by a Contributor) are assigned to the pertinent NM. Changes in the attribution of courses to responsible Contributors will have to be implemented by the DARIAH Moderator upon request by the NM.




Contributor

We invite colleagues to participate in populating the registry by adding their own courses and programmes, following the recommendations in the online manual. When you register with the registry, the responsible National Moderator will receive an e-mail and will have to approve your registration. Upon approval, you will be able to add – and later edit – your course information. If a Contributor decides to cancel his participation in the registry, the National Moderators have to be notified of the changes, preferrably providing a new person of contact for the respective course(s).
