When the Mellon Foundation funded the first iteration of the Digitizing Hidden Collections: Amplifying Unheard Voices (DHC:AUV) program in 2020, they encouraged CLIR to contract with an external research team to conduct a year-long program assessment. CLIR subsequently hired Jesse Johnston and Ricardo “Ricky” Punzalan to conduct an in-depth documentation review, focus groups with program stakeholders, and more than fifty interviews with applicants. The team’s methods and the results of their investigations are summarized in a draft report. A final version of the report will be published in early 2023.
