The Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) advances interdisciplinary, collaborative research. Humanities faculty and students affiliated with the Center are expanding our understanding of history, literature, languages, and culture. The Center also develops unique digital content and tools for scholarly discovery, and offers workshops and forums on humanities topics.

The Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) is a joint program of the UNL Libraries and the College of Arts & Sciences. It was officially established by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents in 2005 and has been designated a Program of Excellence at UNL since 2004.

CDRH is a founding member of centerNet, an international network of digital humanities centers, and is an institutional member of the TEI Consortium, the National Humanities Alliance, and the Consortium of Humanities Centers & Institutes.
