"This site arose out of a common need expressed at the digital humanities centers summit at NEH in April, 2007. Attendees wanted a single place online to locate information about centers, projects, tools, standards, and other aspects of the digital humanities. We hope that others-both at centers as well as individual scholars and others working in the field-will contribute to this site."

Digital Scholarship in the Humanities

Lisa Spiro's blog designed "to explore how digital resources and tools are affecting scholarship in the humanities and consider the potential for digital scholarship. I'll look at tools and methods, reporting on the ongoing conversation about digital scholarship as well as my own efforts to transform my dissertation on nineteenth-century American bachelorhood from a fairly conventional print-based work to a piece of digital scholarship that makes use of digital tools and resources."

The Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes

Established in 1988, the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes serves as a site for the discussion of issues germane to the fostering of crossdisciplinary activity and as a network for the circulation of information and the sharing of resources. It has a membership of over one hundred and fifty centers and institutes that are remarkably diverse in size and scope and are located in the United States, Australia, Canada, Finland, Taiwan, Ireland, Sri Lanka, the United Kingdom, and other countries.

Supporting Digital Humanities Research: The Collaborative Approach
"Panelists from academic computing and the library in three different types of institution will discuss the approaches their organizations have taken as they foster digital humanities research projects. Discussion will focus on the particularities of digital research projects in the humanities, the collaborative relationship of the contributors, and sustainability and scale."

National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS)

NCRIS is a programme that was announced by the Australian Government in 2004 as part of Backing Australia's Ability - Building our Future through Science and Innovation.  You are now leaving the DEST website

Through NCRIS, the Government is providing $542 million over 2005-2011 to provide researchers with major research facilities, supporting infrastructure and networks necessary for world-class research.

Here we trace the research interests of faculty, staff, student consultants, and graduate fellows affiliated with the Scholars' Lab at the University of Virginia Library.

Institutional Descriptions of Support Models

Publication, Preservation, and Access Center for the Digital Humanities - University of Washington

The following three points come from the mini-proposal written by a faculty member at the University of Washington after a retreat of the faculty regarding digital research sponsored by the Mellon Foundation and convened by our University of Washington Libraries.

  • We would like to suggest that the Libraries consider a broader strategy that supports not only access to collections (an internal Library function) but also supports the preparation, publication, and preservation of critical materials in the inadequately funded field of humanities (a point at which the Libraries link with the broader scholarly community).
  • We believe that this kind of support could be achieved at relatively low cost through the establishment of a Center for Digital (? Electronic) Publication, Preservation, and Access.   The purpose of this center would be to fund a cadre of student assistants at two levels:  Three graduate assistants, who would provide technical and administrative assistance in support of the projects; and a larger group of students (say 10) who engage in the lower-level work of the projects.
  • The estimated costs of such a center would be in the range of $110,000-120,000 per year (see the attached sample budget) but the impact of these funds would be disproportionately immense.  The productivity of the projects would be increased many-fold.  The Mellon funds could be used proportionally as matching funds for grant proposals, which, in turn, would further enhance the productivity of center projects.

Consortium of Research and Information Outreach

CRIO is the research and digital media unit within the Research School of Humanities.
The core concept of CRIO is to combine the processes of producing research and digital media.

What we do:

  • develop and publish research in web, digital video and database formats.
  • play a key role in facilitating the development of infrastructures for the creation, management and delivery of humanities research using new technologies.
  • bring together, in a formal relationship, leading multimedia researchers in the areas of the humanities, social sciences, and environmental sciences to enhance the use of digital communication technologies.
  • develop techniques for the delivery and integration of digital media and video into lectures, seminars, conferences and colloquia.
  • utilise our expertise to extend existing opportunities to postgraduate training, short professional courses for students and the growing number of staff in Australian cultural institutions wanting to acquire expertise in networked digital media.

Scholar's Lab - University of Virginia

The Scholars' Lab was established in 2006 at UVA Library as a site for innovation in the humanities and social sciences. The idea was to combine the resources and expertise of the Library's successful Electronic Text (Etext) and Geospatial and Statistical Data (GeoStat) centers with that of UVA's Research Computing Support Group in a physical space that promotes collaboration and experimentation. Two years later, we're extending the conversations that happen in our offices and in the Lab to a wider forum.

The Scholars' Lab caters to the research, digitization, and online editing needs of faculty and students in the humanities and social sciences. Staffed with friendly, expert consultants from UVA Library's Digital Research and Scholarship department and ITC's Research Computing Support Group, the Scholars' Lab is the perfect place to take your digital humanities scholarship and social science research to the next level. UVA Library also plays host to IATH and VCDH, as well as to a newly-formed (and yet unnamed) digital humanities center meant to serve as an umbrella organization over all this vibrant activity.
