Bucknell Awarded $1 Million Mellon Foundation Grant For Liberal Arts-Based Digital Publishing Cooperative

From The Daily Item:

The grant — from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in partnership with the National Historical Publications and Records Commission — will allow Bucknell to partner with the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory and Newcastle University, U.K.


“This grant was designed to find ways to better produce, publish and preserve digital scholarly editions,” says [principal investigator Diane] Jakacki. “Over the past decade, an increasing number of editors have sought to publish their work digitally, and some have assumed that they need to develop their own protocols, custom code sets and preservation mechanisms in order to do so. This has made sustainable institutional support for them very difficult. What this project will do is establish and disseminate protocol-driven, best practice, cooperative-based approaches to digital production and publication of these materials.”
