  • Context, narrative, and interpretation about different aspects of your research question.
  • Digital assets such as images, audio, and video, and their accompanying metadata, as necessary.
  • A Sources page or section (your bibliography).
  • An About page or section that provides:
    • A short biography.
    • A reflective section that talks about why you chose your research question and the future of your project (your research journal should help inspire this section).
    • A link to the Digital Scholarship Summer Research Fellows page (http://dssrf.blogs.bucknell.edu)

    • Information on the tools, content management systems, or other digital components used to create your project (including links to their web pages).
