The Humanities Informatics Initiative brings together scholars from around the University for the purpose of advancing research in the application of information technology to scholarly activities in the humanities and the exploration of the human record. Our goal is to develop innovative computing tools, digital collections, and hypertextual archives of broadly significant academic and educational value to the humanities. The consortium builds on interdisciplinary collaboration between current projects and existing research centers and aims to expand in a synergistic manner the role of information technology research at Texas A&M University.

The initial participants include the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research, the Center for the Study of Digital Libraries and the Texas A&M University Libraries. The initiative addresses several of the goals of Texas A&M University’s blueprint for the future, Vision 2020, by advancing interdisciplinary studies, enhancing research in the humanities, and providing new opportunities for graduate study, thus helping to make Texas A&M University a leader in the critical area of humanities informatics.

The Humanities Informatics Initiative is funded by the Office of the Vice President for Research through a Telecommunications and Informatics Task Force grant, with additional support from the College of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts, the Glasscock Center, and the Texas A&M University Libraries.
