This year, 8 funders are participating enabling this competition to have a world-wide reach into many different scholarly and scientific domains.
For round two, the Digging into Data Challenge is encouraging digital library participants, not only as grant applicants, participating on research teams, but also as content providers, making their collections available to research teams. A list of current data providers is located here.
Final applications will be due June 16, 2011.
