The flexible character of digital resources and their availability in large amonts also makes them vulnerable to misplacement, loss, corruption, and decay. Hence, storage and management -- archiving of resources, identification through a useful and scalable file naming and metadata system, organization, archiving, and preservation -- are part of any good humanities digital workflow. A well organized and managed collection of resources and notes is likewise the starting point for more ambitious digitally based research and analysis. The DHC, Libraries and Information Services provide support for this activity in a number of areas.
An essential part of any humanities scholar's support system is citation and possibly resource management software. A variety of tools are available. Ones most fully supported at the DHC are listed below.
Working on programming projects, it is important to be able to keep track of changes in one's work, to be able to backtrack when a new version does not work, or when an earlier approach begins to look preferable. This is even more important when one is working in a group, as is frequently the case with digital humanities projects. GitHub provides a valuable and widely used platform, with Git clients on individual workstations communicating with a shared resource on GitHub. GitHub also can provide a very useful way of sharing code with others and even publishing websites free of cost.
