Join us for a project presentation from one of our esteemed 2022 Equity In Action Grant recipients!
CUNY Graduate Center and NYU Libraries joined forces to create an oral history collection that documents the stories of individuals and groups who are engaged in developing and implementing alternative library classification schemes or controlled vocabularies. In addition to creating a fully transcribed and cataloged oral history collection, the project team produced an audio piece that synthesizes their work and that can be shared with wider audiences through broadcast, exhibits, and conferences.
About the grant program: The METRO Equity in Action Grant program aims to support member institutions by providing funding that assists with new and ongoing efforts to preserve our cultural history. We endeavor to fund digital projects that focus on anti-racist practices and marginalized communities. Rooted in community and collaboration, this program encourages partnerships between organizations in order to cultivate a mutual knowledge exchange that empowers both parties and creates a pipeline for access.
