This wiki space contains archival documentation of Project Bamboo, April 2008 - March 2013.
(Draft) Wisconsin Success Factors: Engagement by a group of Wisconsin and other faculty and researchers (including graduate and undergraduate students), conducting their scholarship on a shared Bamboo Work Space, along with an initial repository of tools, content, services and scholarly profiles available from Wisconsin and other participants. (12/7/2010 JDM)
Successful Outcome: We will have customized Alfresco ECM according to functional specs and demonstrated ability (through pilot usability studies UCB and with partners) to address a broad range of scholarly needs around collaboration, content management, and the application of tools and services. We will have implemented Work Spaces as part of a larger Bamboo ecosystem which can support interoperability and ongoing development and enhancement. We will have develop a hosted demonstration site and will release open source code that will support a variety of future deployment scenarios. We will be in a good position (i.e., knowledge about interest, costs, etc.) to develop a sustainable service model as part of phase II funding. (NW 1.05.2011)
Successful Outcome: We have implemented a Tools and Services Registry that scholars are using for discovery, ranking/reviewing, and listing of new tools and services. The TSR has been successfully integrated into multiple Work Spaces. (NW 12.10.2010).
Successful Outcome: We have demonstrated ability (pilots, user testing) to develop robust web applications (Oxford VRE-SDM) using OpenSocial that can be deployed in multiple OpenSocial compliant platforms; Provided infrastructure (making Work Spaces OS compliant, developing gadgets server?) and guidelines for developing and deploying future tools and applications via OpenSocial.

(Draft) Wisconsin Success Factors: Content resources from Wisconsin and other institutions, consortia and publishers (such as HathiTrust, Google Books, TCP/EEBO/ECCO, and UW Digital Collections) are delivered in an easy-to-integrate yet properly controlled manner via Bamboo Work Spaces, via Corpora Space and via stand-alone scholarly web services. (12/7/2010 JDM)
(Draft) Wisconsin Success Factors: A clear and compelling articulation and design proposal for Corpora Space (contributed by Wisconsin and our collaborators) that is seriously considered for development in Phase 2 of Bamboo development. (12/7/2010 JDM)
(Draft) Wisconsin Success Factors: Faculty at Wisconsin are actually applying these tools (Chicago's ARTFL PhiloLogic and PhiloMine tools) locally to their scholarship, with their extensive corpora of interest (presumably via a Work Space environment). (12/7/2010 JDM)
(Draft) Wisconsin Success Factors: An engaged, thriving community is coalescing around and actively participating in adoption, use and feedback about Bamboo services and resources (including within local Bamboo Labs), including engagement with social and scholarly networks and the curation of a community-based registry.
