The National Archives and
the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) has a grant
program that may interest you. The program offers up to $350,000 for major archives initiatives
· Does your institution need to conjoin the records of a major historical subject held by several repositories and make them freely available online?
· Does research demand for a high-value audio or moving image recordings collection necessitate digitally converting and posting them online?
· Are there new tools and methods that would greatly enhance the public’s ability to access and use records?
· Have you begun developing a method to make work with born digital records more efficient and want to prove that it’s replicable?
These are just a few
suggestions. We want to hear your creative ideas and discuss how they might fit
with this program. If you would like to schedule a time to talk about a
proposal idea, please email or call the Director for Access, Alex Lorch ([log in to unmask]; 202
Please feel free to broadly distribute this email to any LIS/Archives professionals you think may have interest in this grant program.
