Bollinger Fellow in Public and Community Data Curation

The Bollinger Fellow works to develop and expand sustainable models for the care of vulnerable collections of data and takes the lead in developing partnerships and strategies that ensure equitable access to data and promote data advocacy.

The work takes many forms, including collaborations with faculty, students, and community groups who share an interest in the recent history and present of Philadelphia’s black and Afrodiasporic population to make their own, locally-held collections last longer and remain part of the city’s legacy. The Bollinger Fellow also supports the Penn Libraries’ ongoing efforts toward using open government data and ensuring its long-term stability and safety in light of a changing world.
