Description

This white paper was produced as one of the outcomes of the first meeting of the IMLS grant-funded Collective Responsibility: National Forum on Labor Practices for Grant-Funded Digital Position. In it, the authors describe their methodology for centering contingent worker experiences, share the results of the survey on the experience of contingent laborers in positions created through grant-funding, delve into themes and responsibilities which arose from the forum, and develop outcomes and next steps for the work of the Collective Responsibility project. The paper addresses the challenges of library and archives workers of color face in being welcomed into professional spaces. This project builds on the research of the DLF Working Group on Labor in Digital Libraries, Archives and Museums.
