In spring 2016, the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) was invited to partner with the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) to develop a report on supporting digital humanities. The resulting paper, currently in draft form, lays out a capacity-building framework for developing institutional digital humanities support, drawing on the experiences of IT and library staff from a broad range of colleges, universities, and national organizations. All major facets of capacity building are discussed, including the cultural shift from a solo-practitioner to a collaborative research model, organizational models, governance, and human and technical infrastructure. The working group co-leaders will provide an update on the report and describe some of the key findings.
