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 OER programme and lead by the LLAS Subject Centre, based at the University of Southampton. That project ended in April, 2010, and since that time, the community of users on the HumBox has sustained the site.

The HumBox repository itself was created by a team within the School of Electronics and Computer Sciences, at the University of Southampton, and is a custom-designed version of ePrints for teaching and learning materials.
