Questions to be considered:

  • How does the project relate with other digital scholarship projects?



  • Is there an intentional and appropriate organization of information?
  • Does the project use accepted standards for web design, metadata, and encoding?
  • Is there interoperability with other sites, such as OAI-PMH?
  • Is there a thoughtful balance between design, content, and medium?



  • How does the project address issues of digital preservation?

  • Is there documentation or is the site code made available?


Other Considerations

  • Was the project grant funded?

  • Did the project result in any conference presentations or print publications?
