Upcoming grant deadline: CLIR Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives

The Council of Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is offering an opportunity for institutions to receive funding to digitize collections of high scholarly value. CLIR expects to award about $4 million for digitization, and the funding can support outsourced digitization of special collections.

The deadline is approaching soon: Tuesday, April 3rd.

LYRASIS can help support your project by providing:

  • digitization and project management services – working through our Digitization Collaborative we can digitize a wide range of source materials including print/manuscript/microfilm/photographic materials/audio/video and film and manage the process for you. See more at: lyrasis.org/digitize
  • information on processes and standards that you could include in your proposal
  • professional development opportunities – we offer a wide range of classes and can work with you to provide specific digitization classes to help your staff. See our current class schedule to learn more: http://www.lyrasis.org/Pages/Events.aspx
