CLIR Releases "A Survey of Digital Humanities Centers in the United States"

June 19, 2008 | By Brett Bobley

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) has recently released a report entitled "A Survey of Digital Humanities Centers in the United States" .  The report, written by Diane Zorich, was commissioned by the Scholarly Communication Institute and will be one of the focuses of discussion at their July meeting.

The report covers a wide number of topics, including a definition of a digital humanities center, governance models, administration and operation of centers, sustainability, and trends.  There is also an appendix to the report written by Lilly Nguyen and Katie Shilton entitled "Tools for Humanists" that focuses on tool development.

Chuck Henry, the President of CLIR, mentioned to me that they are very interested in comments and suggestions on the report.
