Funders


Under the leadership of Dr Leonard Polonsky and as part of its International Digitisation Project, The Polonsky Foundation has provided major funding towards the first phase of the Cambridge Digital Library (2010-14), enabling the development of the digital library's core infrastructure and the digitisation of content for its Foundation Faith and Science collections.
Jisc awarded a grant to Cambridge University Library and the Newton Project at the University of Sussex for the Windows on Genius project ( Jisc e-Content Programme 2011). This project enabled the linking of Newton's facsimiles and transcriptions. Jisc also funded the Board of Longitude Collection ( JISC Content Programme 2011-2013) a collaboration with the National Maritime Museum and Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Cambridge. This project created a substantial collection related to 18th century science and technology.
 
The digitisation of the Taylor-Schechter Cairo Genizah Collection has been sponsored by the Jewish Manuscript Preservation Society, the Friedberg Genizah Project Inc., and the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UK.
The cataloguing and digitisation of the Sanskrit Collection and Spanish Chapbooks were funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UK.
The digitisation of the Darwin-Hooker letters has been funded through a grant to the Darwin Correspondence Project from the National Science Foundation.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is an independent US federal agency created by Congress in 1965 to promote "excellence in the humanities". It is one of the largest funders of humanities programs in the United States. NEH supported the digitisation of all items in the Charles Darwin's Evolution Manuscripts under grant no. PW-51320-13.
Much of the content in the Exhibitions collection has been made possible by a generous gift from the Howard and Abby Milstein Foundation.
Descriptions for the Michaelides Collection and for many of the items in the Islamic Collection, as well as digitisation and technical support for the Mingana-Lewis Palimpsest, funded by The Islamic Manuscript Association.
