Connecting scholars to resources is one of the core pillars of the dSHARP mission.
If there are other resources you think particularly important for us to include on this website, please let us know!
dSHARP offers microgrants of up to $500 on a rolling basis each semester until funds are exhausted. These grants are intended to “kick-start” digital research and publishing projects that only require a small amount of funding in order to purchase web hosting, software, digitized materials, or equipment. These may be projects in their initial development, and thus provide support for a project that will later be grant-funded at a larger scale, or they may be projects that only need a small amount of funding total.
We review request on a biweekly basis.
The Microgrant request is available using this webform
CMU University Libraries have facilities for self-scanning. For information on how to undertake more extensive digitization projects, please contact the University Libraries’ Digitization Projects Manager, Anne Marie Mesco.
CMU Computing Services provides all CMU faculty, staff, and students with space on the Andrew File Server to build html-based websites.
