Library gets $695,000 grant to build digital humanities center
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a two-year grant of $695,000 to the Emory University Libraries to establish a cutting-edge, collaborative digital humanities center.
The grant will provide startup funds for the Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) in the Robert W. Woodruff Library. The proposal plan calls for DiSC to establish a site for transdisciplinary collaboration, drawing faculty members and graduate students into new collaborative working relationships with librarians, and launching four large-scale and four smaller-scale seed projects that will draw on the Library’s collections and services in new ways.
