From The Draft Report: Challenges (cont.)
We in the humanities and social sciences cannot depend
on our colleagues in computer science or engineering to
build these tools for us . . . . [and] we cannot depend on
commercial interests to develop the software tools that we need. .
. . If
we’re going to realize the promise of the digital
library, we’re going to have to do it for ourselves . . . and we’re
going to need support systems for that development
effort—research centers that are national repositories of expertise,
postdoctoral programs that emphasize digital scholarship, and
graduate programs that train the rising generation.
