Mellon Foundation Awards New Digital Publishing Grants

March 27, 2015

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is continuing to fund projects that tackle digital scholarship and publishing in the humanities, and on Friday the foundation announced another round of such grants. Among the recipients are university presses at the University of Michigan, the University of Minnesota, Indiana University, Northwestern University and Pennsylvania State University, which will cooperate on developing a publication and preservation platform for digital scholarship. "The ultimate goal is to create a shareable, open-source solution for born-digital complementary monograph materials as well as a working model that maximizes the publishing strengths of university presses and the preservation expertise of libraries," a Michigan spokeswoman said in a press release.
