To highlight efforts to support digital scholarship and to offer insights into the challenges of such iterative and collaborative work, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is publishing a series of profiles of digital scholarship centers at ARL member institutions. The second profile in this series features the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Libraries.
The profile of digital scholarship support at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln (UNL) Libraries provides a brief history of the evolution of such support at the university and an overview of the current support provided by the UNL Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH), including information about staffing, collaborations, training, events, and funding. Additionally, the CDRH is interested in maintaining an institutional culture that values and rewards digital scholarship, so it has developed a guide to that end for promotion and tenure committees. This profile describes and links to three featured projects at UNL: the Willa Cather Electronic Archive, the Walt Whitman Archive, and the Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition Online.
To read each of the profiles in this series as they are published throughout the spring and summer, watch the ARL website, follow us on Facebook or Twitter, or subscribe to our e-mail news lists or the profiles RSS feed.
