EAST No Cost Extension of Mellon Grant Approved

The EAST project's request to extend the funding under the grant provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation from June 30, 2017 to June 30, 2018 has been approved.  This extension allows EAST to utilize surplus funds from the first two years of the grant to expand the EAST membership by adding a group of Cohort 2 libraries, replicate the validation sample study that was undertaken with the current EAST membership, and make further inroads into collaboration and cooperation with other shared print programs.  The text of the narraive of the no cost extension request is available here.
