    Hi All,

    The Commons has recently completed work on a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in which we have collaborated with the University of California at Berkeley to encourage usage of the DiRT Directory ( ).

    The Commons team has created a WordPress Plugin ( ) that integrates the DiRT directory into a WordPress/BuddyPress site.

    We have implemented the plugin on the CUNY Academic Commons and I have activated it for this group. The plugin adds a new tab to our group site, “Digital Research Tools.” Through it, you can see what digital tools are used by members of this group, and you can also visit the directory on the Commons and note which tools you use –

    For more on this plugin, please see our documentation page — . Many thanks to Commons developer Boone Gorges for his work on the plugin, to our UX team (Chris Stein and Samantha Raddatz) for their feedback, and to Scott Voth for putting together this documentation.

    If you have any questions about how this works, please let us know. For now, I hope that this provides a good way to see who else in the CUNY community is using various digital tools that interest you.




    Also, if you are an administrator of another group on the Commons, you can enable this plugin for that group. Enjoy!


    This is wonderful! Can’t wait to get started with the Futures Initiative group. Great work, all.
