CARD 2.0 is a collaborative project. It is based at the Laboratory of Archaeology (LOA) at the University of British Columbia, but it operates in partnership with its founding institution, the Canadian Museum of History (formerly the Canadian Museum of Civilization). The Director of CARD is Andrew Martindale (UBC) and the Advisory Committee includes Matthew Betts (CMH), Michael Blake (UBC), Michelle Chaput (Ottawa), Andrew Mason (Golder), Konrad Gajewski (Ottawa), and Pierre Vemeersch (K U Leuven). Charlotte Grant is our research assistant who manages the data checking and uploading and is funded by a UBC Arts Undergraduate Research Award.
CARD is a crowd-sourced database in which data are supplied by users. CARD operates with a decentralized administrative model in which the Advisory Committee administers and facilitates its development via a series of partners who have responsibility for regional representation or functional capacity. CARD has recently expanded from the efforts of individual users and by the merging of other databases with CARD. These include:
- David G. Anderson (Tennessee), D. Shane Miller (Mississippi State): Paleoindian Database of the Americas.
- Pierre Vermeersch (K U Leuven): Radiocarbon Paleolithic European Database v18.
- Alan Williams (Australian National University): AustArch Radiocarbon Database.
