adjustments to the support
Let's revise the NEH blurb on the support page to say:
Our ongoing effort to collect, transcribe, and encode Whitman's poetry manuscripts was supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities divisions of Collaborative Research (2000-2003) and Preservation and Access (2003-2005). A "We the People" Challenge Grant (2005-2009) enables us to retain key staff as work on all aspects of the site progresses. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this website do not necessarily reflect those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Let's revise the IMLS blurb on the support page to say:
Our project to create an integrated finding guide to Whitman's manuscripts received start-up funds from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation (2001) and was supported through a major grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (2002-2004). A second grant from IMLS supported a project entitled "Interoperability of Metadata Standards for Digital Thematic Research Collections: A Model Based on the Walt Whitman Archive" (2005-2007).
Let's create new language for a NHPRC blurb on the support page to say:
We have recently received a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (2008-2009) to edit Walt Whitman's Civil War Writings.
Please let me know if you see problems with any of this.
