The DiRT Directory "aggregates information about digital research tools for scholarly use". DiRT is an evolving project originally founded by Lisa Spiro. The aim of DiRT is to make it easy for digital humanists and other scholars conducting digital research to source out the necessary tools for their project. DiRT facilitates access to a wide variety of digital scholar tools ranging from blogging platforms to linguistic research tools to annotation resources to data visualization. Managed by an editorial board of approximately 20 members, DiRT's directory is constantly expanding and evolving as the team works to ensure "the coverage and accuracy of the directory's tool listings".
