The Pennsylvania State University Libraries, in collaboration with the University of Missouri -Kansas City University Libraries, will host two meetings to explore the experiences of grant-funded digital laborers in the libraries, archives, and museums (LAM) communities, and subsequently, will inform the development of best practices for the evaluation process of project proposals. The work builds on research conducted in 2017 by the Digital Library Federation Working Group on Labor that revealed the need to bring together stakeholders from across LAM communities. The project seeks to address the issues created and reproduced by short-term and grant-funded positions, how those impact the lives and professions of the workforce, and how they affect investments made in national digital LAM infrastructures and services.
