“The University of Chicago Library is pleased to announce its participation in an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded project to support the development and implementation of the Chicago Portal. The $194,000 grant was awarded to the University of Illinois Board of Trustees on behalf of the Library, which is leading the project with the Chicago Collections Consortium (CCC). The University of Chicago is a member of the CCC. The fifteen-month grant will fund the development of CCC’s major first initiative, a freely accessible, online portal to materials documenting the rich history of Chicago. The portal paves the way for CCC to fulfill its vision of connecting and preserving Chicago-focused collections, and increasing public and scholarly interest in and study of the Chicago region’s diverse history and culture.” (via The University of Chicago Library News)
