The TAPAS project received a $50,000 grant from the Office of Digital Humanities at the National Endowment for the Humanities to develop a User Experience for TAPAS. The grant will fund a series of workshops between January and December 2012 to develop and test a prototype interface for TAPAS. The first meeting already took place at Wheaton College in January (watch this space for a report coming soon) and the next meeting is scheduled for April at the University of Virginia. Librarians and technologists from several institutions are participating in this effort, including Brown University, Hamilton College, Willamette University, Wheaton College, and the SHANTI project at the University of Virginia.
The Office of Digital Humanities (ODH) is an office within the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The primary mission of the ODH is to help coordinate the NEH's efforts in the area of digital scholarship. The ODH works not only with NEH staff and members of the scholarly community, but also facilitates conversations with other funding bodies both in the United States and abroad so that we can work towards meeting these challenges.
