National Leadership Grants for Libraries

The Educopia Institute, in partnership with the School of Library Sciences at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, will work to investigate, model, and test workflows for born-digital content curation in libraries and archives. Specifically, the project focuses on integration and interoperability of three open source digital library tools (BitCurator, Archivematica, and ArchivesSpace) and to support partner institutions in integrating these tools into their workflows. To accomplish this work, the project will support and study implementation of these tools across 12 partner institutions - Robert W. Woodruff Library, District of Columbia Public Library, Duke University, Emory University, Kansas Historical Society, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Mount Holyoke College, New York Public Library, New York University, Odum Institute, Rice University, and Stanford University. Working across these different institutional contexts, the project focuses on two core applied research questions. How can institutions combine tools to support workflows that meet local institutional needs? How can institutions implement "handoffs" between different function-based systems?
