Expanding and Sustaining an Open Future for the Past: Data Literacy and Community-Building in Digital Heritage

The expansion of archaeological data publishing and archiving services, development of a data literacy program for the broader public, and establishment of a consortium to sustain open access to archaeological data in the future.

Digital data increasingly informs our understandings of the present and the past. We seek funding to expand on our achievements in data sharing and address critical and immediate needs to broaden fundamental data literacy competencies. Our Challenge Grant plans include: (1) expanding our core archaeological data publishing and curation services; (2) launching a Data Literacy Program for broader public education; and (3) establishing a network of museum, library, publisher, and other institutional sponsors to financially sustain open access research data. By reinforcing and expanding collaborative ties across institutions, we can help insure a more sustainable, open, and inclusive historical and archaeological record for generations to come.
