Humanities CORE Receives NEH Grant

The MLA and the Columbia University Libraries have been awarded a $300,000 NEH Digital Humanities Implementation Grant to contribute to the development of Humanities CORE, the social interdisciplinary repository for the humanities. The grant will support significant improvements to ease of use, integration with institutional repositories and other scholarly communication services, and collection of data about when, how, and how often work is being downloaded, cited, and shared. CORE will allow those who create free Humanities Commons accounts to deposit their work—including syllabi, data sets, conference presentations, and white papers—in a library-quality archive and share it through the network’s discussion platform.
