Sandra Phoenix (Project Director: March 2018 to present)
Building Capacity for Humanities Special Collections at Historically Black Colleges and Universities

The delivery of collections care services and training opportunities for members of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Library Alliance, in order to strengthen stewardship of special collections documenting the African American experience.

“Building Capacity for Humanities Special Collections at Historically Black Colleges and Universities” (“Building Capacity – HBCU”) is a five-year program designed to build capacity for the long-term preservation and conservation of collections at each of the 71 member libraries and to strengthen their staffs in collection stewardship and fundraising for collections care initiatives. Through this program, the HBCU Library Alliance will offer a menu of preservation planning documents, collection surveys, treatment and rehousing services, and educational programs to the member libraries. By helping them to move forward in achieving collection care goals, the HBCU Library Alliance will assist the libraries in building capacity for fundraising for special collection initiatives, documenting cultural heritage materials, increasing accessibility of special collection items, and promoting the humanities significance of their collections.
