We interrupt our vacation for a short blog post.
We are very pleased to report that the National Endowment for the Humanities just awarded a Digital Humanities Implementation grant to the Alexandria Archive Institute in support of our efforts to develop data publishing services with Open Context. In collaboration with a team of archaeologists working in the Mediterranean region, our project will further develop workflows to publish archaeological datasets as “Linked (Open) Data“, so that they can be used and integrated with many diverse data sources available on the Web to address important research topics.
We are grateful the NEH for their generous support and to our colleagues that bring energy, ideas, and talent to this collaborative effort. We’ll make further announcements about this and other projects in the upcoming weeks. Until then, it’s back to our previously scheduled vacation.
