Please join me in congratulating the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD) and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) on their recently awarded CollectionSpace mini-grant ($26,000). Working together, the project partners will develop a new profile for CollectionSpace designed to improve management of materials collections. The profile will include a new authority for managing materials information, and an innovative expansion of the CollectionSpace authority platform that will allow both collections to contribute to a shared materials authority. RISD and HGSD are also working toward the development of a consortium that will allow materials collections across the country to contribute to and benefit from their work.
We look forward to a long and productive collaboration.
CollectionSpace Program Manager
