Vote for the PressForward plugin! The PressForward plugin, which allows users to aggregate and curate web feeds for publication in WordPress, has been nominated for a DH Award. The DH Awards are publicly-voted awards for the digital humanities community. The plugin is used not only for our own Digital Humanities Now and Global Perspectives on Digital History, but also by the dh + lib and Open Access Now groups.
The PressForward plugin was one of eight projects nominated as “a tool or suite of tools created by members of the DH community, used for enabling, encouraging, and/or accomplishing DH work.” Additional categories include: Best Contribution Not in the English Language, Best Use of DH for Fun, Best DH Visualization or Infographic, Best DH Blog Post, Article, or Short Publication and Best DH Project for Public Audiences. Voting closes on February 14 at midnight. We’re honored to be included in the list of impressive nominees, and hope it leads to larger audiences learning about and using the PressForward plugin to create their own publications!
