Join the Connecting Communities Digital Initiative (CCDI) for our 2023 Awardee Project Celebration event on Thursday, April 4th, at 2 pm EST. This virtual event highlights the work of CCDI’s 2023 Higher Education and Libraries, Archives, and Museums award recipients and their experiences remixing and reusing the Library’s digital collections.

The awardees include Boone County Public Library, Guild Hall of East Hampton, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Houston Community College System, and the University of New Mexico.  Over the past year, each of their project teams have researched digital Library materials to create projects that center Black, Indigenous, and Latinx or Hispanic communities. Representatives from each of the project teams will share their experiences, demo their final projects, and share their project outcomes. At the end of the event, attendees will have the opportunity to ask the awardees questions about their work.

Registration is now open! Please join us and share widely with your network.

Attendees are encouraged to submit questions in advance to [email protected]. Additionally, attendees may request ADA accommodations at (202) 707‐6362 or [email protected].


CCDI is part of the Library’s Of the People: Widening the Path program with support from the Mellon Foundation. This program provides fellowships and grants to individuals and institutions for projects that innovate, imagine, and remix Library materials to highlight the stories and perspectives of Black, Indigenous, Hispanic/Latino, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and other communities of color from any of the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and its territories and commonwealths (Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands).
