HBCU Library Alliance and CLIR Announce Appointment of Project Researchers

From CLIR:

The HBCU Library Alliance and the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) are pleased to introduce three highly skilled and knowledgeable consultants/researchers who will lead a series of focus groups and interviews with HBCU library leaders and staff.

Their work, funded by a planning grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation titled “Creating Access to HBCU Library Alliance Archives: Needs, Capacity, and Technical Planning,” will help the HBCU Library Alliance to envision how its 76 member institutions can work together to preserve, describe, and digitize their unique collections. Selected through a highly competitive process, these researchers will work closely with Sandra Phoenix, executive director of the HBCU Library Alliance, throughout the project.

The results of this study will contribute to the articulation of common values, priorities, and needs for describing and managing special and archival collections for the HBCU Library Alliance community.
