Digging Digitally / BoneCommons
- 1) Digging Digitally: Eric Kansa of The Alexandria Archive Initiative has initiated a new blog:
Digging Digitally: Archaeology, data sharing, digitally enabled research and education on behelf
of the Digital Data Interest Group of the SAA. DDIG members can use this blog to share news and
announcements about their programs and activities. Hopefully, DDIG members will post suggestions
on developing data sharing standards, intellectual property frameworks, policies, and other
issues. DDIG members are also invited to use this weblog as a way to share links to individuals,
projects, programs and organizations.
2) BoneCommons: The International Council for Archaeozoology (ICAZ) and the Alexandria Archive
Institute have teamed up to create BoneCommons, an open access internet-based forum for the
archaeozoological community. BoneCommons facilitates communication between ICAZ members by
providing a place for them to “meet” online.
