With grant support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the LC Labs team will test a cloud-based approach for interacting with digital collections as data. In collaboration with subject matter experts and IT specialists at the Library, LC Labs will invite a cohort of research experts to experiment with solutions to problems that can only be explored at scale. This effort will help produce models for supporting cloud-based research computing, and will make the costs and possibilities of this work more transparent to the broader cultural heritage community.
Apply now to be one of two Digital Scholarship Librarians supporting the project.
