It is necessary to acknowledge the contributions made to these projects by students who generously volunteered their time. During the Fall 2012 semester, Ricky Padilla and Dane Font helped me tag a sizeable portion of the Arteroids Archive with metadata as it was ingested into the Omeka installation (graciously hosted by Jim Andrews at Vispo.com). In the Spring 2013 semester, Hannelen Leirvag created hundreds of records in the ELMCIP KB from entries in I ♥ E-Poetry, linking the two databases and solidifying the partnership between both projects. I am extremely grateful to them for helping me develop these projects.
For this Fall semester, I have enlisted three talented students from my English Department– Aleysha Arce, Cynthia Román, and Ian Rolón– to become interns with me to continue the work begun with. The mechanism is an interdisciplinary course (INTD 4995) designed to award credit to students participating in an internship. My students will work 9 hours per week during the semester to earn 3 credits in this course, which will fulfill a recommended elective in their curriculum. Working and collaborating in several digital humanities projects should provide valuable experience and help them develop 21st century skills that will be useful for their future studies and professional lives.
