What does each project receive?
In addition to receiving $35,000 in funding, Prototype Fund projects go through a six-month process that begins with a three-day course in human-centered design, facilitated by LUMA Institute. Building on that training to better develop their projects, the teams gather six months later for a demo day to share their discoveries and developments.
Here are a two of the 22 projects that are being led by librarians.
Collective Development by Anchorage Public Library and Code for Anchorage (Project lead: Meg Backus; Anchorage, AK.): Opening library programming up to patrons by creating a participatory platform that will allow people to propose projects, workshops or events that the library will facilitate.
Data Privacy Project by Data & Society Research Institute (Project lead: Bonnie Tijerina; New York): Making it easier for libraries to set up secure digital services and for librarians to help patrons better understand online privacy issues through a technical support network, software and documentation toolkits, and more.
