Research and Outreach: Increasing representation of Indigenous American, Hispanic American, Asian American and Pacific Islander artists in The Met’s Thomas J. Watson Library.

Expansion of access to materials by historically underrepresented artists within the Metropolitan Museum of Art's library collections, and retention of nine jobs.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Thomas J. Watson Library requests $468,500 to support a project that aims to assess, expand, and promote access to the Library’s collection of exhibition catalogs, monographs, and other publications that document, interpret, and illustrate the work of Indigenous American, Hispanic American, and Asian American/Pacific Islander artists. Over the course of one year grant funds will support 8 part-time positions—3 Bibliographers/Research Associates, 2 Metadata and Cataloging Librarians, and 3 Library Assistants—who will conduct bibliographic research with the goal of adding at least 600 publications by and about artists in each of the three heritage groups to the Library’s collection. Project staff will disseminate the resulting catalog records, resource guides, and artist indexes through public programs, presentations, and The Met’s social media, facilitating the identification and discovery of resources in Watson’s print or digital collections, or online.
