OPPORTUNITY: Libraries and Museums Advance the Digital Humanities

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has announced that it will now jointly fund Digital Humanities Advancement Grant projects with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH):

The field of digital humanities is increasingly moving into the domains of library and museum professionals, such as curation, preservation, information architecture, metadata, and sustainability. We see this moment as a critical juncture for ensuring that library and museum professionals are understood as leaders in the digital humanities, and not simply as supporters in a passive role. For the digital humanities to continue to mature as a field, it is critical that library and museum professionals are equal partners in advancing the work. To this end, we are thrilled to renew our partnership with NEH.

IMLS funds will be used to jointly support projects that involve collaborations with libraries or museum. Proposals for the grants will still be submitted directly to the NEH; the deadline for the next round is January 11, 2017.
