Jisc is commissioning a project which will be of interest to medical historians, digital humanists and librarians. The project, entitled Visualising Medical History, is part of the wider UK Medical Heritage Library project which is making 15 million pages of 19th Century medical texts available digitally.

Visualising Medical History will analyse the content of the UK Medical Heritage Library with the aim of producing data visualisations and tools to facilitate a greater understanding of the corpus and greater engagement and access for learners and educators.

If you are interested in this opportunity please visit the Jisc website. The deadline for proposals is the 18 May 2015 and the project will run until 31 July 2016. Jisc are looking for teams made up of subject specialists (medical historians, digital humanists etc.) and technical specialists (data/computer/information scientists etc.).

For further information on the project please contact Alex Idris-Thomas.
