This page, originally created to help the participating NA+DAH teams envision possible outcomes, persists as an excellent resource for brainstorming and strategizing digital deliverables in the humanities. It was created by John Ladd, who also prepared an accompanying slide deck which is also extremely useful. Many more examples of digital projects in the humanities can be found on the NA+DAH Collected Bibliography page.
