Academic Room (beta: http://www.academicroom.com/)
Academic Room is an online platform that was developed at Harvard University to facilitate interdisciplinary engagements among scholars and researchers around the world. Academic Room’s mission is to curate and disseminate scholarly resources, which are organized in over 10,000 academic sub-disciplines. They share the conviction that easy and unimpeded ability to obtain quality educational resources should be a right and not a privilege. The platform allows academics, researchers and students to create highly specialized portals for their subfields. These portals can be enriched with professional directories, scholar profiles, video lectures, bibliographies, journal articles, books, reviews, images, ancient manuscripts and audio recordings.
You are invited to participate in the pilot launch.Please register and also encourage students, teachers and researchers within your institution to join.
