The DataLab has been working over the past year to make our resources more readily available to the community. The homepage, the job board, and now the researcher toolkits have all seen substantial upgrades! Today we want to highlight a new capability of the toolkits, specifically community contributions!

The researcher toolkits are now hosted through our Github repository, meaning anyone in our community can contribute their expertise. Each toolkit is a self-service reference document meant to help researchers learn more about a tool or method regardless of their skill level, meaning there is room for everyone to add their voice. Currently we have toolkits covering bibliometrics, data management, geospatial methods, network methods, research technologies, and natural language processing.

If you have knowledge of any of these areas, or would like to make a toolkit of your own, check out the github repository to learn how you can contribute!
