(Please share widely and with anyone you think may be interested)

The deadline to apply for the ArchivesSpace Diversity Partnership is coming up on March 15. More information about the program is below. Please reach out to us at ArchivesSpaceHome at lyrasis.org<mailto:ArchivesSpaceHome at lyrasis.org> if you have any questions.


The ArchivesSpace Diversity Partnership is a new program that offers support for implementing the ArchivesSpace application to institutions that are themselves or primarily serve communities underrepresented in the ArchivesSpace community. Participating organizations will receive, at no cost to them, ArchivesSpace membership, hosting with a Registered Service Provider, training, and user and technical support for the duration of a three-year term.

Eligible organizations include:

  *   academic Minority-Serving Institutions such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), and Tribal Colleges and Universities
  *   non-profit or community archives primarily run by or serving BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color)
  *   tribal archives

To be eligible for this new program, organizations cannot already be ArchivesSpace members or current hosting clients of any ArchivesSpace provider.

This program will launch with a small cohort of institutions on July 1, 2021. The three-year term will conclude on June 30, 2024.

More information about the ArchivesSpace Diversity Partnership, including information about how to apply, is available at https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/2049998863/ArchivesSpace+Diversity+Partnership. We also held an informational webinar outlining the program and the application process last month. The recording is available on our YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/B3SOgG4zThM. The deadline to submit an application for the program is March 15.

Members of the planning group are happy to answer questions or discuss potential applicant's situations at any time. Please contact us at ArchivesSpaceHome at lyrasis.org<mailto:ArchivesSpaceHome at lyrasis.org>. We really appreciate the interest in the program and look forward to receiving some great applications!
