Smith Libraries, Art Museum, and Botanic Gardens Win Mellon Grant to Develop Collaborative Digital Infrastructure

We are pleased to announce that The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded Smith College an additional grant to support academic art museum, botanic garden, and library collaborations. The new grant follows a planning grant awarded in 2017 and provides $380,000 in funding. Upon completion, the grant will leave Smith with a sustainable digital infrastructure shared by the museum, libraries, and gardens. The College will have a campus-based model of stewardship, newly linked data and collections, and entirely new cross-collection public access to the materials in an unprecedented way to the benefit of the campus community and the wider public.
