American Antiquarian Society (Worcester, MA 01609-1634)
James David Moran (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Activating Virtual AAS

The retention of four staff members to digitize historic materials, produce videos, and manage live events recorded remotely.

The American Antiquarian Society, an independent research library and learned society founded in 1812 that serves humanities scholars and the public by preserving unparalleled primary source material for American history and offering access to scholars and the public through a variety of programs, seeks support under the NEHCares program to create Virtual AAS, translating its hallmark dedicated service and in-depth sharing of its collections into a more robust online presence. Support is requested to retain three staff members who will redirect most of their efforts toward producing nearly all programs through the end of 2020 for online presentation, as well as for the VP of Programs who will lead the project, and for a new scanner so that in-house digitization may proceed, with images made freely available to humanities scholars and to staff producing virtual content, including inventories, digital exhibitions, webinars, and curator-led conversations.
