Libraries: Transformation of the Humanities
Humanities scholars are increasingly using digital technologies to create and share work. Within this new education and research climate, humanities undergraduates have unprecedented opportunities to contribute and to conduct research of real value. Johns Hopkins University Library System and its partners from Tufts University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will develop collaborative virtual work space, including collections and services, designed to support a new "collaborative lab culture." This new model will explore and demonstrate the ways that libraries can support new modes of collaboration in research and learning.
PI: Allen Renear, Sayeed Choudhury (Johns Hopkins University); Co-PI: Gregory Crane (Tufts University)

Open Annotation Collaboration (Phases I, II and III)
This 3-phase project seeks to facilitate the emergence of a Web and Resource-centric interoperable annotation environment that allows leveraging annotations across the boundaries of annotation clients, annotation servers, and content collections; to demonstrate through implementations an interoperable annotation environment enabled by the interoperability specifications in settings characterized by a variety of annotation client/server environments, content collections, and scholarly use cases; and to seed widespread adoption by deploying robust, production-quality applications conformant with the interoperable annotation environment in ubiquitous and specialized services, tools, and content used by scholars.
PI: Timothy Cole, Jane Hunter (University of Queensland), James Smith (University of Maryland), Herbert Van de Sompel (Los Alamos National Laboratory); Co-PI: Anna Gerber (University of Queensland), Robert Sanderson (Los Alamos National Laboratory)
