Check out the latest Library as Incubator post on our work: a piece co-written by CEO Kelly Hiser and Andrew Harbison, Seattle's Assistant Director of Collections and Access. Here's an excerpt:

"These kinds of collections—built on a licensing relationship between the library and the artist—seem to automatically generate engagement that goes beyond collection use, teaching communities about the amazing work their neighbors create. This makes PlayBack the perfect project for The Seattle Public Library, which has a strategic goal of engaging local creative communities in new ways by offering relevant, inclusive, and participatory programs and services, as well as representing the work of these communities in the Library’s collections."
