Seeking Best in Class Digital Scholarship Centers

Our study takes a global perspective in benchmarking the skills and competencies required to support digital scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. We will be visiting ten “best in class” digital scholarship centers around the world, five in North America, five international. We seek to understand whether there is a set of core competencies important to digital scholarship and, if so, whether that slate of competencies remains consistent across disciplines, geographic areas and cultures.

We invite the digital humanities community to suggest sites for us to visit. We are using a variety of criteria to identify potential sites, including clear vision and implementation strategies, strong records of successful projects, national/international recognition, innovation and/or strong training and education programs, as well as a willingness to participate in a site visit. Please email Lisa Spiro, the project’s research consultant, at if you would like to recommend a site for us to visit (including your own institution) or have any questions.
