Making Methods Modern
Designed by historians, our software and services make research, publishing, and cultural heritage work possible.
Omeka provides web publishing platforms for sharing digital collections and creating media-rich online exhibits.
Your personal assistant, Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share research.
Take control of your research photos with Tropy, the tool that shortens the path from finding to using sources.
PressForward enables individuals and collaborative teams to gather, edit, and publish web-based content.
Connect with researchers at remote archives for documents you need. Sourcery: your sources, like magic.
Committed to the responsible stewardship of critical open-source infrastructure for the digital humanities, we founded the nonprofit Corporation for Digital Scholarship in 2009 to develop and operate the business models for Omeka and Zotero. Having secured their long-term sustainability and independence, we have since helped launch and sustain a growing family of software projects, including Tropy, PressForward, and Sourcery.
