The College Art Association (CAA) and the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) have released Guidelines for the Evaluation of Digital Scholarship in Art and Architectural History for Promotion and Tenure. The guidelines are the result of a task force convened by the two associations of ten members from the academic community with experience in digital research, publication, and/or scholarly communications and administration. Supported by funds from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the joint task force reviewed current guidelines and literature on the topic, surveyed the membership of each association, and conducted interviews with constituents from 16 institutions across the United States that produce digital work regularly in art and/or architectural history.

Read more about the project here and here. An essay on evaluating digital resources by task-force member Michelle Millar Fisher can be found on the College Art Association website.
