The Canadian Society for Digital Humanities/Societé canadienne des humanités numériques announced the winner of their 2016 Outstanding Early Career Award: Ian Milligan, PI of the Web Archives for Historical Research Group!
We received some good news: our proposal, "Web Archives for Longitudinal Knowledge (WALK)," was accepted in the Compute Canada's Research Platforms and Portals competition. Bringing together 20 core years and 35 TB of storage over the next three years (valued at $11,635), we will use these resources to bring Canadian Archive-It partners together with our analytic tools. Right now, there are great Canadian web archives, but they're siloed. WALK will hopefully begin to end that.
