   Dear Colleagues;

   I would like to call your attention to a grant opportunity designed
to encourage and support new developments in the broad field of web
archiving. †This program, made possible by a grant from the Andrew W.
Mellon Foundation and administered by Columbia University
Libraries/Information Services, will provide financial support for
projects to develop tools and applications to improve the process of
web archiving or the use of archived web content. †A fuller
description is provided in the Call for Proposals (below and
attached.) †

   If this grant is of interest, I would encourage you to submit a
preliminary proposal prospectus according to the procedures described
in the Call. †Please also assist us in getting the word out by
redistributing this Call for Proposals to other potential applicants.†
Information about this program is also available on this web page:
https://library.columbia.edu/bts/web_resources_collection/call_for_proposals.html[1].

   Regards,

   Bob

   Web Archiving Incentive Program
Call for Proposals

   1.†††† PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Thanks to a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation,
Columbia University Libraries / Information Services (CUL/IS) will
administer a Web Archiving Incentive Program intended to support new
developments in the broad domain of web archiving.† We now invite
proposals from qualifying institutions for projects that improve,
enhance or innovate in the areas of web harvesting and use.†

   a.†††† TYPES OF PROJECTS IN SCOPE

The Program welcomes projects that involve analyses, improvements and
innovations in areas that include (but are not limited to):

   1.†††† Development of new tools for web harvesting, web archive
curation and use† †††††

   2.†††† Improvement/extension of existing web platforms in
collaboration with publishers/developers to support archiving

   3.†††† Improvement/extension or innovative implementation of
existing web archiving tools/services

   4.†††† Packaging/bundling of existing tools to assist creation, or
use of web archives

   Please see the appendix at the end of this call for proposals for
examples of projects in scope.

   A wide diversity of proposals within the projects in scope is being
sought.† Projects must focus on automated tools and provide thorough
documentation of expected behavior of the tools.† Preference will be
given to projects that will modularly extend an existing tool, produce
a fully functional tool, demo site or working prototype.† When
appropriate the creation of a full technical specification will be
considered a final deliverable (an accompanying product specification
is desired but secondary).

   A set of sample data from Columbia Universityís web archives will
be made available for funded projects, but it is not required that the
sample data set be used to complete the work funded.

   b.†††† TYPES OF PROJECTS NOT IN SCOPE

The current grant will not support proposals for educational or
training programs, internships or residencies.

   c.†††† PROVIDING ACCESS TO GRANT PRODUCTS

All software developed must be fully documented and made available

already assigned to the code will be applied to additions.

Awards amounts are expected to range from $20,000 to $25,000, but
proposals requesting smaller or larger amounts will be considered.
Allowable expenses under these awards include salary and fringe for
project staff as well as travel. Indirect costs will not be assessed
or covered.

   All work must be completed and final reports submitted by October
30, 2014.† Earlier completion dates are encouraged.

   3.†††† ELIGIBILITY

Grants must be institutionally sponsored by a college, university or
non-profit organization (501(c)3 or 501(c)4) in the United States of
America, with final proposals submitted through the institutionís

will be employed, and a brief summary of the qualifications of the
project staff.† This prospectus is due September 30, 2013.† At this
stage, evidence of approval by the institutionís sponsored research
(grants) office is not required; however, applicants should be
prepared to obtain all necessary approvals should a full proposal be
requested.

   If the project is approved for further consideration, a full
