The PBMP has received generous support from the American Council of Learned Societies through its Digital Innovation Fellowship program and from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant program. The seminal support for the project came from the College of Humanities and Fine Arts and the Department of Classics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, as well as a grant from the UMass Digital Humanities Initiative. The Digital Humanities Initiative award allowed the project to hire six undergraduate students to work on the bibliographic database and to purchase a book scanner that will aid in the digitization of Pompeii’s robust publication list. An additional Project Grant for 2012-2103 from the College of Humanities and Fine Arts has helped to bring our digitization of the bibliographies to completion.
Inquires on the opportunities for support and collaboration from individuals and organizations are welcome. Please email Eric Poehler at PompeianaATgmail.com.
