Abstract

Its National Leadership Grant (NLG) program is one of the many ways in which the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) supports the development of innovative new projects and services by the museum, library, and archival community in the USA. Over the course of the NLG program, collaboration has emerged as one of the several strategic approaches that engender success. Digital projects, which can be complex in execution and which often require a diverse range of skills and resources, benefit especially from collaborative approaches. The IMLS NLG program has encouraged a wide range of collaborations, across a diversity of organization types and at a diversity of levels.
