Digital ethnography

"One of the central missions of the Tibetan and Himalayan Digital Library involves creating a comprehensive system for using technology in fieldwork, beginning with tools and guidelines for collecting and generating data in the field, through the intellectual and technical processing of that data, up to the final publishing and dissemination of materials. Throughout, our system involves a strong ethical commitment to the communities being researched. This means that the system must support:

* local scripts/languages and conceptual systems being used for the generation, indexing, analysis and utilization of materials
* local scholars being empowered to participate in the system from top to bottom
* local schools being able to incorporate the results within their educational system
* products being sent back to the communities in question right down to the village level using innovative strategies for publication and dissemination."
