In January 2021, the AAI launched a new Sustainability, Collaboration, & Network Building Project with a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and matching funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities through AAI’s current NEH Infrastructure and Capacity-Building Challenge Grant. The aim of this project is to develop institutional partnerships with libraries, museums, universities, professional societies, and other cultural heritage organizations in order to develop sustainable initiatives around digital data management, public humanities, and data literacy. The project is run by Dr. Leigh Anne Lieberman, who joined the AAI in January 2021 as Director of Strategic Partnerships. This project will work in conjunction with both the Data Literacy Program and the Digging Digital Museums Collections Project.
