The “dirt” on DiRT


DiRT stands for Digital Research Tools, an interactive wiki created by Lisa Spiro (director of the Digital Media Center at Rice University) to collect information about tools and resources that can help scholars conduct research more efficiently or creatively.

Whether you need software to help you manage citations, author a multimedia work, or analyze texts, Digital Research Tools will help you find what you’re looking for. The wiki provide a directory of tools organized by research activity, as well as reviews of select tools. The wiki also explores how select tools might be employed most effectively by researchers.
