Profiles of Key Cyberinfrastructure Organizations

by David Green, Knowledge Culture

We present here a collection of short profiles, specially written for Academic Commons, on key service organizations and networks that will be poised to assist and lead others who are working to bring a rich cyberinfrastructure into play. Some are older humanities organizations for which cyberinfrastructure is a totally new environment, others have been created specifically around the provision of digital resources and support.

We invite your comments and your suggestions for other organizations and networks that you see as key players in providing CI support.
