This report documents the national summit meeting of digital humanities centers and major funders, which took place on April 12th and 13th at NEH headquarters, in Washington, D.C. The purpose of the meeting was to take seriously the ACLS Cyberinfrastructure Commission’s call for digital humanities centers to become key nodes of cyberinfrastructure in the United States. The summit was especially concerned with assessing the value of and the desire for greater collaboration and communication among the centers; among the funders; and between both groups. The NEH and the summit steering committee invited participants from a representative group and range of 17 digital humanities centers, as well as 14 key funders of the field, including NEH, Mellon, NSF, IMLS, ACLS, the Getty, and the Luce, Macarthur, and Sloane Foundations, plus two representatives from Google.
