The School of Information and Library Science and Duke University Libraries announce the premier offering of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) Electronic Records Research Fellowships.
Four of these $15,000 non-residential fellowships are available to practicing archivists and records managers, or teams of academics and practitioners, who are interested in pursuing topics related to the stewardship of electronic documents.
The program goals are to support the research efforts of archival professionals; to facilitate collaboration between practitioners and academics; to increase interest in the NHPRC Research Fellowships and archival research; and to increase the body of electronic records research. Another product of the grant will be the development of a Web resource center for archival researchers.
“I am so pleased that NHPRC funded this program,” said Dr. Helen Tibbo, a SILS professor and fellowship program director. “There is a critical need to fund electronics records research. There is also a need for institutions such as SILS and Duke to support records practitioners in the design and execution of strong research projects. We see this program filling both needs. The fellows work will benefit not only their own repositories but the archival profession as a whole and will be distributed as widely as possible.”
