Open Tools (3): Digital Research Tools (DiRT) Directory

The series Open Tools presents openly available tools supporting mostly qualitative SAP research. This post is about the Digital Research Tools Directory. dirt-logo

The Digital Research Tools (DiRT) directory is the tool for finding the right tools – a meta-tool, if you like. The landing page offers a broad variety of potential use cases for digital tools, ranging from analyzing data over converting and organizing files to transcribing audio, video or manuscripts, to name just a few.

The main reason why I love the DiRT directory, however, is its great and simple interface for limiting results in each category according to few but helpful criteria: interface-DiRTIn addition to restricting results to open source tools, you can even choose to only look at tools under a certain open source software license. Most of the future posts in this series will deal with tools I have found by browsing through the DiRT directory. (leonhard)
