Tools to faciltitate interdisciplinary collaborative teams

We should have a session on the tools participants find useful in supporting their collaborative teams, especially those that cross disciplinary boundaries.  The session could explore how to hack a collaborative team site by loosely coupling existing tools.

Mark your calendars . . .

. . . because February 21-22, 2014 May 16-17 are the  dates for THATCamp DHCollaborate!   Our camp will take place on the Texas A&M University campus,  with most activities held in Evans Library and in the Liberal Arts and Humanities Building.

While we are working out further details,  please help us to get the word out to librarians, faculty,  technologists,  and other DH practitioners.
