RDA 8th Plenary Joint meeting: IG Digital Practices in History and Ethnography, WG Data Type Registries and WG Research Data Collections

Meeting title: Evaluating Barriers to Digital Humanities Adoption of Data Infrastructure

Groups: IG Digital Practices in History and Ethnography, WG Data Type Registries, WG Research Data Collections

Please give a brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group(s)

The IG Digital Practices in History and Ethnography (DPHE) aims to advance data practices and infrastructure for the empirical humanities (including anthropology, folklore, interpretive sociology, and history). Key aims of the interest group include networking digital humanities communities into RDA and evaluating best practice for data citation, usage, and management in the humanities. 

The WG Data Type Registries #2 aims to develop use cases for revising the initial recommendations for data type registries based on adoption experiences. 

The WG Research Data Collections aims to develop use cases and recommend tools and solutions for aggregating data objects until collections with PIDs.

Please provide additional links to informative material related to the participating groups i.e. group pages, case statements, working documents etc
