Pratt Institute (Pratt Institute, School of Information)

Log Number: ARPML-250555-OMLS-22

The School of Information at Pratt Institute will partner with three new institutions, The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center National Archive; Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc; and The Lesbian Herstory Archives to expand its graduate fellowship program for emerging LAM (library, archive, and museum) professionals to better serve diverse communities and collections including BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities in NYC. This project supports diverse communities and collections, provides paid internships to graduate students—acknowledging that unpaid internships are a barrier to diversity and inclusion efforts, and brings emerging LAM expertise to communities hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
