NEH and Mellon Foundation Provide Grants for Digitizing Humanities Books

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation are providing seven grants (totaling more than $1 million) to digitize out-of-print humanities texts and make them freely available as ebooks. These grants, part of the Humanities Open Book Program, will be given to “publishers that have identified significant scholarly books that enhance public knowledge of topics such as American and European history, philosophy, classics, Asian and Latin American studies, architectural history, and literary criticism,” according to the press release. The grants will cover the digitization of nearly 1,000 scholarly works.
