The Catalyst Fund Program: Funding Concept to Fruition

Ideation, creation, innovation. Archives, libraries, museums all have innovative ideas but do they have the sustainable funds to test, try, test again or move an idea to creation to production. In the fall of 2016, LYRASIS developed the Catalyst Fund to help seed fund innovative ideas with the caveat that these funded projects become available to the larger archive, library and museum world for all to use. We received 61 applications, met with leaders in the field to vote on 10 of those, and funded the top projects and ideas with over $100k. In this session, listen and learn what projects were funded, the status of those projects and how you can reap the benefits of these innovative ideas and products from our colleagues.
