Funding Announcement: Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU Law Awarded Two Year, $1 Million Grant to Support Library Futures
We are thrilled to announce that the Mellon Foundation has awarded the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU Law a two year, $1 million grant to support Library Futures. This grant is in service of our specialized mission that focuses on identifying, addressing, and tackling issues at the cutting edge of libraries and technology.
Over the next two years, we will be building out our team of library practitioners, policymakers, advocates, and technologists and promoting new possibilities for preservation of, and unfettered access to, information. We will explore new technologies and policies for access to information and continue to advocate for open access to culture in the service of the public good.
Library Futures originated as a 501(c)3 in January 2021 and is now housed within the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU School of Law. We are innovative and proactive, tackling cutting-edge issues around technology and access to information. We do so by mobilizing a community of experts through research, policy and advocacy, education, special projects, and programmatic interventions that seek to encourage the adoption of technologies that uplift libraries in the digital age.
