Products, Prizes, and Media Coverage: A New Crowdsourcing Effort from the NEH

Over the course of the last 46 years as a humanities research agency, the NEH has funded thousands of grants. These grants often lead to amazing projects, including publications and “products” of all sorts. For example, NEH grants lead to award-winning books, films, journal articles, websites, dictionaries, conference papers, summer institutes, software programs, radio programs and so on. We thought it would be terrific to create a database of all these products and tie them back to the grants that funded them.
