The project has an ambitious scope in terms of technology and data, which requires extensive funding, in addition to the voluntary contributions of many.
The University of Virginia has provided the staff for the initiative's complex technical infrastructure:
- Tibetan and Himalayan Library staff funded by the Department of Education IRSP and TICFIA programs
- ITC's Instructional Technology Group
- Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities
Content generation has been funded in particular by Tibetan and Himalayan Library staff funded by the Department of Education IRSP and TICFIA programs. However, much of the content is provided freely by the volunteer scholars who are ultimately the dynamism making this project worthwhile.
