Diversity and Collaborative Knowledge Program

The Diversity and Collaborative Knowledge Program and Institutes are made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. 


Welcome to the Diversity and Collaborative Knowledge Network. This is a statewide program dedicated to locating and making accessible historical records reflecting the history and perspective of diverse individuals and communities and providing professional learning for both the curators of these historical records and the educators incorporating them into their classroom curriculum. Initially established through a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, the Diversity and Collaborative Knowledge Network expands our offerings of primary source-based educator resources, professional learning opportunities, and membership in the New York Council for History Education. By working together, historians, archivists, librarians, and educators create learning experiences for students that prepare them to be the next generation of active and engaged citizens.
