The National Humanities Alliance has launched a new website, Humanities for All, that highlights publicly engaged humanities projects at higher education institutions across the United States. The Humanities for All site features more than 1,400 projects that “have advanced humanities scholarship and enriched American life—building and strengthening communities; creating learning experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds; sparking dialogue; and broadening our understanding of ourselves, our nation, and our world.”
Many projects at Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member libraries are highlighted by Humanities for All, including the following six projects that have full profiles on the site:
- Dartmouth College: Metadata Games
- University of Georgia: An American Literary Landscape: Life, History, and Memory in Putnam County, Georgia
- University of Maryland, Washington University in St. Louis, and University of California, Riverside: Documenting the Now
- University of Pennsylvania: Scribes of the Cairo Geniza
- Washington State University:Mukurtu CMS: An Indigenous Archive and Publishing Tool

The Association of Research Libraries is an active member of the National Humanities Alliance, a coalition of organizations dedicated to advancing humanities education, research, preservation, and public programs.
