This question arose from Amdeberhan's question, the evaluation of a double integral, which can be reduced to the evaluation of this series: $$\sum _{n=0}^{\infty } \frac{\Gamma \left(n+\frac{1}{2}\right)^2 \Gamma \left(n+\frac{s}{2}\right)}{\Gamma (n+1)^2 \Gamma (n+s)}=\frac{\pi ^2 2^{1-s} \Gamma \left(\frac{s}{2}\right)}{\left[\Gamma \left(\frac{3}{4}\right) \Gamma \left(\frac{s}{2} +\frac{1}{4}\right)\right]^2},\;\;{\rm Re}\,s>0.$$ The evaluation of the sum is Mathematica output.

Can someone enlighten me as to how this calculation proceeds?

_{I went so far as to pay for Wolfram Alpha Pro, hoping that it would disclose the steps, but to no avail. What is even more frustrating is that for $s=1$ the right-hand-side is the square of a complete elliptic integral, which is also recognized immediately by Mathematica and was the original question in the cited post, so far without a conclusive answer.}
