Digital Scriptorium  

Grant History

Digital Scriptorium has been supported by the generosity and vision of several funding agencies; we are very grateful to:

  • the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (Nov. 1996-Dec. 1998 with extension through Dec. 2000)
  • the National Endowment for the Humanities (May 1999-April 2001 with extension through Oct. 2002)
  • the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation (Sept. 2001-Dec. 2002 with extension through June 2003)
  • the National Endowment for the Humanities (July 2004-June 2006 with extension through June 2007)

In addition, Digital Scriptorium has received unfailing support from the administration and staff of the libraries of its two founding partners, Berkeley and Columbia. Those most actively involved at Berkeley have been: Charles Faulhaber, Director of the Bancroft Library, as well as Lynne Grigsby-Standfill, John Hassan, Dan Johnston, Merrilee Proffitt, Martha Rust. At Columbia, Jean Ashton and Michael Ryan, successively Directors of the Rare Book and Manuscript Library, advanced the project, as did Consuelo Dutschke, Leslie Myrick, Dwight Primiano (independent photographer). Technical direction in the most recent phase of work at Columbia was supplied by Stephen Davis, Terry Catapano, Joanna DiPasquale, Dmitri Laury, Stuart Marquis and David Ortiz; Elizabeth Shaw of Aziza Technology and Sharon Goetz provided special work on the two XML-encoded texts for the descriptions of the Huntington Library and the Petrarch Census.
