12K NEH Grant Records, 1966-1979, Now Available Online

12,000 National Endowment for the Humanities grant records spanning 1966-1979 are now available online. “Over these two years and some odd months, we keyed grant data from thousands of edge-notched McBee cards into a development database, scanned the cards and ran optical character recognition (OCR) software, reconciled funding amounts, and wrote scripts to ingest and integrate data into the NEH’s electronic Grants Management System. And, as of September 2015, all the award records are open to search via the Funded Project Query Form and as datasets on Data.gov.”
