About the Digital Library

The Council's Digital Library was built using Omeka, an online presentation tool. Omeka uses the Dublin Core metadata standard, which is visible on each item's page in the library. Metadata standardizes descriptive terms and enables items to be easily found, searched, and sorted.

We invite you to browse the individual grant products, called items, as well as their full projects, called collections. Within a collection, items such as invitations, reports, photographs, media clips, and promotional materials associated with the grant have been digitized. Please note: these items are not a comprehensive portrait of the total projects. The physical versions of the items in this library are located in the Council's archives in our office on Washington Street.

The Digital Library is itself an experiment - a pilot for how the Council can develop and provide unprecedented access to the many remarkable projects we have supported over 40+ years.

We invite your feedback on this initiative!
