METRO is pleased to announce that applications are now available for our 2013/2014 Digitization Grant Program.
This year, based on feedback from the METRO community, we are offering three different funding options for our members. Individual institutions may apply for solo project grants in amounts up to $12,000. We will also continue (as in recent years) to offer funding for collaborative digitization projects involving one or more METRO members, in amounts of up to $25,000. Finally, we will be offering digital conversion "microgrants," in amounts up to $5,000, to digitize materials through Internet Archive's scanning services.
METRO will be distributing a total of approximately $70,000 in grant funds through the New York State Regional Bibliographic Databases Program (RBDB).
Details regarding the three funding opportunities, including information, guidelines and applications are available now on the METRO website:
All applications are due on July 31, 2013, and awards will be announced by October 1st.
