I’ve had a Humanities Commons account for a while, but I am just starting to explore its full potential.

Before joining the faculty at New Jersey Institute of Technology, I was at two institutions — Georgia Tech and the University of North Texas — that had excellent libraries and institutional repositories. I didn’t realize I’d been spoiled.

This is not to blame the library or the librarians at NJIT. They are doing the best they can with the resources they’re given.

But after three years without the sort of institutional support I had grown accustomed to, I think it’s time for me to see what Humanities Commons can do.
