Humanities Commons Planning Task Force Report 2019

Research & Reports,

About this Report:

The Humanities Commons Planning Task Force (HCPTF) was established in fall 2018 to investigate the near- and long-term advantages and disadvantages of ARLIS/NA joining the Humanities Commons (HC) network, particularly with regard to membership retention, publishing and web site content, educational programs, and association management. In this final report, the task force focuses on three factors: the ongoing cost to the society, categories of content and activities that could migrate to the HC platform, and the factors related to the society’s association management that would ensure successful implementation.
