Many institutions have and are creating digital humanities centers to support the growing needs related to digital humanities research. For local researchers, additional support is always great news. In terms of the larger academic landscape, this is also great news because it means a stronger overall infrastructure for support for research that's interdisciplinary and technically demanding (e.g.; demanding of older computers and machinery, high level computing resources, community critical knowledge mass, etc.). At the institutional level, keeping all of the correct resources aligned for the full research lifecycle (initial planning through ongoing preservation) is challenging and UCLA's Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE) presents an interesting model with their recently established their "Digital Project Pipeline".
IDRE's goals with the Digital Project Pipeline are explained:
Gameology folks, what types of support are available at your institutions? What type of support do you think should be available?
