The Brown University Scholarly Technology Group (STG) provides advanced 
technology consulting to Brown humanities faculty, departments, 
libraries, and research centers primarily through large and small 
projects in support of scholarly work in the digital medium. We also 
explore the critical new technologies that are transforming scholarly 
work and helping to maintain its longevity: data and metadata standards, 
XML publication tools, text encoding methods, new media forms, and 
accessibility standards. STG has three staff members: the Director, a 
Senior Research Programmer, and a Research Programmer. STG also employs 
between 3 and 5 student programmers and designers; students who are 
domain experts often contribute to projects.

collection, published online since 1999 as Women Writers Online, is 
widely used in the USA and internationally. The project itself has been

* Digital Humanities at Brown University

At Brown, the digital humanities have a long history which includes 
groundbreaking work in fields as disparate as hypertext, text encoding, 
linguistic corpora, and computer graphics. Digital support groups, 
long-standing research projects, and individual faculty members now make 
up a thriving community for research, discussion, instruction, and 
development. The Library’s Center for Digital Initiatives focuses on 
digitizing important and distinctive library collections whose content 
lends itself to digital dissemination. The CDI also addresses 
institution-wide issues in digital research including metadata 
standards, digital repositories, and the long-term archiving and 
preservation of digital materials. The Scholarly Technology Group 
supports digital humanities research through its faculty grants program, 
through seminars and public lectures, and through the research of its 
staff. Research projects like the Women Writers Project, the Modernist
