Mellon Foundation gave $840K to Yale press for new online portal to make archival art and documents more readily accessible for everyone.
"From an academic standpoint, researchers may attempt to access important archival material, but they must pay an exorbitant amount to do so. The Yale University press hopes to solve this problem thanks to a $840,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The grant will establish a new electronic portal on which curated and customizable art and architectural history content will be available to consumers and institutions. Users will also be able to customize the content, making course packs or creating other digital publications from a variety of texts." -- Mike Scutari, Inside Philanthropy
