The Center for Computer Assisted Research in the Humanities (CCARH) was founded in the 1984 by Walter Hewlett. It is engaged in the development of large databases of musical and textual materials for applications in research, teaching, and performance. It pursued the goals of (1) synchronous software for encoding, archiving, printing, and analysis of musical repertories; (2) promotion of similar capabilities in academic and non-profit communities; (3) development of instructional material for university-level courses; and (4) sharing of knowledge in the development of collective tools for management, interchange, and source verification in digital initiatives involving music.

History

CCARH operated independently as the Center for Computer-Assisted Research in the Humanities, with premises in Menlo Park, CA, until 1996, when it moved into the Braun Music Center on the Stanford University campus. Although CCARH remains there, it has operated under the auspices of the Packard Humanities Institute since 2011.

Teaching

Its graduate courses, which were first offered in 1994, serve an interdisciplinary population of students and visiting researchers in various branches of music, computer science, and related disciplines.

Collaborations

CCARH has played an active role in many collaborative research projects. In recent years these have particularly included RISM and MEI.
