The Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC), with generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is excited to announce that it is seeking applications for a new round of digital scholarship projects to begin development in summer 2012. Successful proposals will receive a small budget (up to $8,000), dedicated technical support, and project management.
Project proposals will be evaluated by a selection committee made up of faculty members and librarians on the following criteria:
- General scholarly excellence
- Potential for use and exposure of the Library’s collections, particularly MARBL
- A well-designed, realistic project plan with concrete outcomes, description of specific tools and technologies and a timeline including any preliminary prep work that will be needed
- Contribution to digital scholarship at large
- Plan for sustainability
- Potential for tool-building and re-use
DiSC is particularly interested in projects that focus on Atlanta as a geographic, political, historical, and/or cultural subject.
Applications are due April 20, using the proposal submission form.
Interested scholars are encouraged to meet with staff from DiSC to discuss project ideas while developing a proposal. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a consultation. To learn more about the digital scholarship commons, please visit: http://web.library.emory.edu/disc.
