2009 LARRY J. HACKMAN RESEARCH RESIDENCY PROGRAM AT THE NEW YORK STATE ARCHIVES The New York State Archives and the Archives Partnership Trust announce the availability of awards for qualified applicants to conduct research using historical records at the New York State Archives. The Larry J. Hackman Research Residency Program is intended to support advanced research in New York State history, government, or public policy. The program encourages public dissemination of research products. The Hackman Research Residency Program honors the New York State Archivist who headed the dramatic development of the State Archives between 1981 and 1995.

Applicant/Project Eligibility – Applicants must be engaged in an original research project using historical government records held by the New York State Archives. Preference will be given to projects that: (1) have application to enduring public policy issues, particularly in New York State, (2) rely on holdings that have been little used and are not available on microfilm or electronically, and (3) have a high probability of publication or other public dissemination. Research in records held by other institutions is not eligible for support.

Previous residents have included academic and public historians, graduate students, independent researchers and writers, and primary and secondary school teachers. Projects involving alternative uses of the Archives, such as research for multimedia projects, exhibits, documentary films, and historical novels, are welcomed.
