This Q&A session is for Cohort 2 applicants for the Collections as Data: Part to Whole funding opportunity. With generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Part to Whole fosters the development of models that (1) support computational use of collections as data (2) and models that support collections as data creation. We seek proposals from teams jointly led by a librarian, archivist, or museum professional with senior administrative responsibilities, a disciplinary scholar, and a project lead.
A total of $300,000 will be awarded to Part to Whole Cohort 2 applicants. Teams can apply for $50,000 to support the development of a use model, an implementation model, and a new collection as data. Teams will be further supported via cohort development activities. The application period is open from August 1 - October 31. This session is for applicants with questions about Part to Whole.
