The Virginia Digital Humanities Consortium, a project conceived of and begun at THATCamp Virginia last April at Virginia Tech, is now live at vadhconsortium.org.
The Virginia Digital Humanities Consortium is an informal partnership incubator and collaboration space for faculty, students, teachers, technologists, artists, designers, librarians, archivists, and museum professionals in Virginia who work in the digital humanities. The purpose of the Virginia Digital Humanities Consortium is to foster inter-institutional digital humanities collaborations: it provides a way to find Virginia partners and a place to work with them. Anyone can register for the site who lives in (or near) Virginia and works or is interested in working in the digital humanities. Features include rich member profiles where people can list, browse, and search interests, fields, skills, skill levels, and existing digital humanities projects; inter-institutional digital humanities groups with forums and collaborative documents that any member can join or create; a digital humanities events calendar; and many messaging and communication and notification options.

Thanks to all at THATCamp Virginia who participated in the discussions about this project.
