The Scholars’ Collaborative
The Scholars’ Collaborative staff use a variety of tools and platforms. Visit our Tools Guide for a list of programs and software we regularly use. Below are some of our favorites.
Omeka is a free, flexible, and open source web-publishing platform for the display of library, museum, archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions. Its “five-minute setup” makes launching an online exhibition as easy as launching a blog.
Voyant Tools is a web-based text reading and analysis environment. It’s designed to make it easy for you to work with your own text or collection of texts in a variety of formats, including plain text, HTML, XML, PDF, RTF, and MS Word. You can also work with an existing collection of texts like Shakespeare.
UT Affiliates interested in free virtual (self-paced) GIS training with ESRI software (ESRI Virtual Campus) can choose from a list of courses. After selecting a course(s), please email Eric Arnold, GIS Specialist, who will send you course codes with instructions. Please use your UTK email address when emailing.
The DMPTool lets you create, review, and share data management plans that meet institutional and funder requirements. With 30 different funder requirements built in, it walks you through the DMP requirements step by step and you can export it to submit with your grant application.
