Create a new collection of themes (by clicking here)
The last theme collection in the list is a template page; it can be ignored.
Recently modified theme pages are listed in the "Recently Updated" list at the end of the right-side column on this page.
Given the many scholarly practices discussed in Workshop 1, and the expectation that a broad range of themes will be identified as Project Bamboo participants analyze and group these practices, it may be helpful to identify collections of themes that are of particular interest to certain Project Bamboo sub-communities. An art historian, for example, may be less interested in performing optical character recognition (OCR) on books than a librarian; and a librarian might be less concerned with student-mentoring than a scholar. "Collections" of themes are intended to help Project Bamboo participants find and discuss the themes most relevant to them.
This activity will become more useful and meaningful over time, as more themes of scholarly practice are proposed and documented on the wiki.
Before creating a collection, browse the list of those already created and decide whether it might be better to contribute to the refinement of an already-existing collection. If you have an idea for a collection that is not already represented:
If you have a new collection to propose, we ask that you provide:
This example might be a helpful model as you consider how to build your own collection.
Click here to copy the Collections Template and begin work on a new collection. When you save the new collection, be sure to rename the page with an appropriate, identifying new theme collection name.
Collections can be a personal analysis of existing Themes of Scholarly Practices, created and maintained by an individual or a small group. If the collection creator asked that no one else add to their collection, you can still contribute through comments.
If you are contributing to a collection that is open to others, please remember to add, don't subtract so that everyone's voice can be heard.
When contributing to a collection of themes, please keep Project Bamboo's community design guidelines in mind, as laid out in How to use this site.
As you and your team create content this area will fill up and display the latest updates.
