#WkshpPM1: The Manifold Scholarship Platform Workshop
The Manifold Scholarship Platform: A Hands-On Workshop
1The Graduate Center, CUNY, United States of America; 2Cast Iron Coding; 3University of Minnesota Press
This workshop will present the continuing development of Manifold ( http://manifoldapp.org ), an open-source scholarly communication and book publishing platform. Created by the University of Minnesota Press, The GC Digital Scholarship Lab, and Cast Iron Coding, and funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Manifold aims to present scholarly publishing -- whether monograph, journal, Open Educational Resource-- in a new networked and iterative form that has strong ties to print and rich multimedia. Members from the Manifold team’s representing development (Cast Iron Coding), publishing (University of Minnesota Press), and digital humanities (GC CUNY), will walk participants through from installation through uploading and customizing projects within the interface. Participants will learn what Manifold is, how it works, how it integrates into existing university-press publishing workflows, and how to use it on their own for a variety of publishing and pedagogical needs.
