    The HumBox is an online space for the publication, sharing and managing of digital humanities resources. It is also the hub of a community of humanities professionals who are engaged in re-using and reviewing each other’s resources and making connections with each other through the HumBox system. It was created as part of the HumBox project, which was funded under the JISC/HEA Open Education Resources (OER) programme and led by the Higher Education Academy Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies (LLAS) Subject Centre, based at the University of Southampton, in collaboration with the Subject Centres for English, History and Philosophical and Religious Studies. The project ran from April 2009 to April 2010, and since that time, the community of users on the HumBox has sustained the site and grown in numbers.
