Bamboo Tools and Services Registry (TSR)

The page is a container (parent) to pages pertaining to the Bamboo Tools and Services Registry (TSR)

Table of Contents


Participants in the Project Bamboo planning workshops called for an accessible and transparent venue where scholars, librarians, technologists, and campus resource managers can learn about existing tools for the humanities, identify areas of technology need, specify requirements, and evaluate solutions as they evolve.

The Tools and Services Registry will aggregate, in a common data store, descriptions of technology and content and associate a set of comments, ratings, and reviews with these descriptions. Contributions to the registry can be made by users of Bamboo technology (including Work Spaces and Scholarly Services), or by any others who wish to participate in assessment activities.

The registry will also aggregate service registry and usage data from the Bamboo Services Platform. These data will include:

  1. descriptive information about services deployed on the Bamboo Services Platform, both in human-friendly format, and in technically formal formats (e.g., WADL or WSDL service description standards)
  2. information about tools, services, and/or digital content contributed by scholars who use Work Spaces to describe, discuss, and assess technology applied to their research and teaching
  3. references (e.g., URLs) to described tools, services, and/or digital content in cases where it is downloadable or integratable, and references to information about how scholars, librarians, and technologists can use them
