To help prepare leaders who can collaborate, innovate, and produce concrete solutions to common problems, NITLE is launching a new leadership development program called the Innovation Studio. Inspired by start-up accelerators and project-based learning, the Innovation Studio offers a structure for librarians, information technologists, academic support staff, and other qualified candidates from across the NITLE Network to tackle thorny challenges. This competitive program is designed to produce two significant results: innovative solutions to critical issues in liberal education and a set of entrepreneurial, knowledgeable leaders well-prepared to help build a robust future for liberal education.

These NEH grants support national or regional (multistate) training programs for scholars and advanced graduate students to broaden and extend their knowledge of digital humanities. Through these programs, NEH seeks to increase the number of humanities scholars using digital technology in their research and to broadly disseminate knowledge about advanced technology tools and methodologies relevant to the humanities.
NEH is soliciting proposals from institutions to participate in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). Over a period of two years, successful applicants will select newspapers—published in their state or territory between 1836 and 1922—and convert approximately 100,000 pages into digital files (primarily from microfilm), according to the technical guidelines (76-page PDF) outlined by the Library of Congress.
