Computationally Intensive Research cover

This report, released by the Council on Library and Information Resources in June 2012, culminates two years of work by CLIR staff involving extensive interviews and site visits with scholars engaged in international research collaborations involving computational analysis of large data corpora. The report, co-authored by Charles Henry, President of CLIR, and Christa Williford, CLIR program officer, produced recommendations that the authors describe as “urgent, pointed, and even disruptive” for researchers, funders, libraries, and universities who are embarking on collaborative research projects that take advantage of large-scale “big data” in the humanities and social sciences. The study was funded by a Digital Humanities Cooperative Agreement (HC-50007-10)
