"[University of Nebraska-Lincoln] Digital Humanities Content Awaits Entry into HathiTrust" & Online Digital Humanities Projects from UN-L

From a Committee on Institutional Cooperation News Post:

An in-depth archive of documents related to poet Walt Whitman are among the treasures owned and housed in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, but it could soon have a wider audience of students and scholars thanks to UNL joining the CIC, reports the Omaha World Herald.

When the University of Nebraska-Lincoln joins the conference next year, it also will join an academic network that is expected to strengthen the effort to construct a massive digital archive of the works of 19th-century American poet Walt Whitman.

Once UNL is part of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, the shared network involving Big Ten schools and the University of Chicago, UNL can join the Hathi Trust, a digital collection of more than 6 million volumes from libraries at universities across the country.

That would expose the Whitman Archive to a wider audience and “hopefully it would give it a higher visibility and higher use,” said Kim Armstrong, deputy director of the Center for Library Initiatives, an office within the network.

Folsom said UNL's digital research center, a joint initiative of UNL Libraries and the College of Arts and Sciences, “will bring the most developed digital humanities center to the CIC.”
