The board of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has approved funding for the Project Bamboo technology proposal.
The Foundation is providing a grant of $1.293 million for technology designed to support research in the humanities. The grant covers an 18-month plan of work that will include the creation of scholarly Work Spaces, the design of future Corpora Space applications, and the basic platforms and collection interoperability services that will support these and additional tools in the future.
UC Berkeley will lead and coordinate the project, and the work will be carried out by a consortium of universities, each of which is making a substantial investment of its own resources. The partnering universities are: Australian National University; Indiana University; Northwestern University; Tufts University; University of Chicago; University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; University of Maryland; University of Oxford; and the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
