Our work has been supported by the generosity of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which awarded NINES initiator Jerome McGann a Mellon Distinguished Achivement Award in 2002 and generously extended its funding for a further two years of work, ending in 2008. Mellon monies were chiefly being used to fund ARP (a group for Applied Research in ‘Patacriticism), which developed NINES metigital Research and Scholarship team for all of the institutional and technological support they provide for the NINES project.
