Library of Congress Gets $1 Million for Cloud-Based Digital Collections Project

The Library of Congress (LC) received a $1 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to work on its Computing Cultural Heritage in the Cloud (CCHC) project, “which will pilot ways to combine cutting edge technology and the collections of the largest library in the world, to support digital research at scale.” 

The LC Labs team will use grant funds to “test a cloud-based approach for interacting with digital collections as data. In collaboration with subject matter experts and IT specialists at the Library, LC Labs will invite a cohort of research experts to experiment with solutions to problems that can only be explored at scale. This effort will help produce models for supporting cloud-based research computing, and will make the costs and possibilities of this work more transparent to the broader cultural heritage community.”

For more information, read the press release.
