The grants are intended to “advance the museum, library, and archive professions through new research and the creation and dissemination of innovative tools, models and activities that can be shared broadly,” said IMLS Director Susan Hildreth.

The RISD Fleet Library has been awarded $50,000 to host a forum of invited stakeholders including artists, architects and designers, educators, researchers and librarians to provide advice on the resources and documentation required to prepare art and design students for knowledgeable and responsible use of materials in their professional work.
