AH-274474-20

University of Puget Sound (Tacoma, WA 98416-5000)
Jane Carlin (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Staffing to Support Digital Teaching Collections in the Humanities

The continued and expanded employment of archival humanities professionals working with university collections to support online teaching and engage students remotely with primary sources.

The Archives and Special Collections in the Collins Memorial Library of University of Puget Sound include but are not limited to collections of the people, history, economy, and politics of the Pacific Northwest, highlighting the experiences of marginalized and underrepresented peoples, and supporting the current academic interests of 237 faculty and 2414 undergraduate students. During the pandemic, our small A&SC staff of one full-time archivist and part-time assistant archivist has rapidly reached its capacity to create digital tools and teaching sets while facing greater demand for our materials. The university faces a challenging funding position at the same time that external funding for the part-time assistant archivist position is ending. With NEH funds, we will retain and support new A&SC staffing to complete this project, scale up our digital collections, and create more robust and meaningful humanities teaching tools.
