Adler Planetarium (Chicago, IL 60605-2403)
Andrew Johnston (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Digital Humanities Leadership through the Adler Planetarium’s Preservation, Engagement, and Crowdsourcing Initiatives

Retention of six staff positions to further digital engagement with humanities collections and sustained development of a crowdsourced transcription platform.

This effort will retain and support critical staff leading digital humanities (DH) efforts at the Adler Planetarium, which has long served as a bridge between humanities and science. DH leadership includes support for longtime Adler initiatives like Zooniverse, which provides tools and support for GLAM/humanities teams building crowdsourced research projects. Digital engagement with Adler collections includes Google Arts & Culture exhibitions, current and upcoming Zooniverse projects, and significant in-house experience developing and running live stream events. NEH funds will ensure that Adler DH efforts persist, including continuing to function as a source of support for the broader humanities community by providing tools and guidance for institutions creating meaningful digital engagement with cultural heritage collections.
