- Aida: Image Analysis for Archival Discovery. Images created in the digitization of primary materials contain a wealth of machine-processable information for data mining and large-scale analysis, and this information should be leveraged to connect researchers with the resources they need and to augment interpretation of human culture, as a complement to and extension of text-based approaches. Aida applies image processing and machine learning techniques from computer science to digitized materials to facilitate and promote archival discovery. ($60,000 Start-up Grant from National Endowment for the Humanities Office of Digital Humanities, 2014–2015; $462,000 National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, 2016–2019.)
- Digital Scholarship Incubator. Supported by the University Libraries and the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, the Digital Scholarship Incubator (DSI) promotes student-led digital research and scholarship.
