UC Santa Cruz is the lead institution on a $100,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) to help build a sustainable system for the digital publication and discovery of historical records. 

The campus is one of eight winners nationally who have been awarded funds to design a cooperative infrastructure for publication, including digital repositories and discovery tools. The project team will discuss policies concerning rights and access, common use of linked open data standards, a possible system of shared governance, and a means of sustaining the work.

UC Santa Cruz assistant professor of history Elaine Sullivan will serve as the acting principal investigator of the grant, in collaboration with Angel D. Nieves of San Diego State University.
