The Collections as Data team have issued a call for proposals for project teams to “further develop approaches to integrating and sustaining collections as data implementation and use as a core organizational activity” and develop “broadly viable models that support implementation and use of collections as data.” Successful proposals will receive funding and support from the Collections as Data team and advisory board:
With support from the Andrew W. Mellon foundation, we will fund 12 teams. 6 teams will be funded in cohort 1. Each team can apply for $30,000 – $80,000. To ensure that project results will be valuable to scholars and sustainable within libraries, we are seeking proposals from collaborative teams jointly led by a librarian, archivist, or museum professional with senior administrative responsibilities, a disciplinary scholar, and a project lead.
Proposals are due October 31, 2018 for cohort 1, and October 31, 2019 for cohort 2.
