As part of a planning grant, IU Libraries is seeking three graduate assistants to work collaboratively to produce three white papers which will be published via open access in IU ScholarWorks and used to prepare for a large-scale grant proposal. A panel presentation will occur to share the findings of the research completed. The three following topics will structure the papers and presentation:
Outreach and Engagement Activities: Investigate the current status of outreach and engagement activities in rare books and special collections libraries, specifically those specializing in religious texts and artifacts.
Sustainable Digital Exhibitions: Conduct research on devising a sustainable program of digital exhibitions.
Contemporary Curatorial Roles for Religious Topics: Research and provide an overview of contemporary curatorial roles and responsibilities with an emphasis on those focused on religious collections.
Stipend: Each graduate student selected will receive $13,500.
