Digital Infrastructure Project

The Digital Infrastructure Project has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy demands wisdom.

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) issued a challenge grant to GBH Media Library and Archives in 2018 in support of the Digital Infrastructure Project to preserve and digitize the most at-risk items in the GBH archival collection, specifically 83,000 media resources. This effort will preserve the archive we have built and ensure that future media assets are properly preserved as they are created.

Major funding for the Digital Infrastructure Project is provided by:

Linda and Andrew Egendorf

The initial creation of Open Vault was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) (IMLS Grant Log Number LG-05-05-0220-05). IMLS further funded the development of Open Vault in 2008 by supporting the Vietnam Collection. The views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this website do not necessarily represent those of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The prototype website was funded in part by The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation supported the further development of Open Vault through the Digital Library Initiative, funding the addition of new functionality and features such as a catalog, scholar exhibits, and digitization on demand.
