Humanities Commons is a great resource for MLA members and folks from all over the humanities. At the MLA, for example, forums are using the Commons to organize mentoring among their membership—matching up graduate students and untenured faculty members with folks who are happy to share their own experience and advice.
Humanities Commons allows our members to work together and to make connections with humanists from other disciplines. I pop my publications in to CORE because, hey, who knows? Somebody might want to read them!
