Pilot/Prototype Application Questions

Below are the questions for the Pilot/Prototype CDRH Project application Form. These are provided as a convenience so you can consider your answers before filling out the form.

Pilot or prototype applications are for digital humanities work that is at an early stage of development. Generally, a pilot project will not be permanently hosted on UNL library servers but rather have a short-term lifespan in order to build a proof of concept or demonstration project. Such applications need not be accompanied by other sources of support.
