Harvard GSD & RISD are Recipients of CollectionSpace Grant for Materials Authority

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.
