Pilot/Prototype Site

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. Preview all "Pilot/Prototype Site" questions here.

Production applications are for digital humanities work that is at a later stage of development. Projects ready for production mode will often be built on an existing prototype. Production applications should be accompanied either by existing sources of support (internal or external) or active applications for resources to support the work of the project.
