Social Sciences
A Report on the Experiences of First Respondents to the Digging Into 
Data Challenge

June 12, 2012.
Today, at the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries in Washington, DC, 
the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) released One 
Culture: Computationally Intensive Research in the Humanities and Social 
Sciences. This report culminates two years of work by CLIR staff 
involving extensive interviews and site visits with scholars engaged in 
international research collaborations involving computational analysis 
of large data corpora. These scholars were the first recipients of 
grants through the Digging into Data program, led by the NEH, who 
partnered with JISC in the UK, SSHRC in Canada, and the NSF to fund the 
first eight initiatives. The report introduces the eight projects and 
discusses the importance of these cases as models for the future of 
research in the academy.

Funded by NEH Cooperative Agreement HC-50007-10.
