        Subject: UCD Scholarcast Added to DHO:Discovery

University College Dublin Scholarcast Podcasts added to DHO:Discovery


The DHO is pleased to announce that podcasts from UCD's Scholarcast initiative have been added to DHO:Discovery.  The podcasts are studio-recorded to broadcast standard and are aimed at a wide academic audience of scholars, graduate students, undergraduates and interested others. Each scholarcast is accompanied by a downloadable PDF transcript to facilitate citation in written academic work.

The addition of these resources to DHO:Discovery enhances the rich collection of research-oriented digital objects already accessible through DHO:Discovery. DHO:Discovery currently draws together digital objects from collections at Chester Beatty Library, Irish Traditional Music Archive, National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG), Royal Irish Academy (RIA), Trinity College Dublin (TCD), University College Dublin (UCD) and University College Cork (UCC).  

DHO:Discovery | DHO:Fionnachtain, launched last week, allows users to discover images of art, music and voice recordings, letters, maps, drawings and more, from collections at higher education and cultural institutions.  The website acts as a gateway to resources that were not previously linked by offering a single place from which disparate collections can be searched and browsed.  In doing so, DHO:Discovery supports the sharing and creation of new knowledge.

DHO:Discovery is consistently developing, evolving, improving and taking user feedback into account.  The DHO looks forward to welcoming the inclusion of new and exciting Irish digital collections as this new web venture expands and grows.

This initiative was developed with the support of DHO partners, including those from the HSIS consortium, Irish cultural institutions and Ireland’s High Performance Computing Centre (iCHEC).
