In January 2005, METRO launched its Digitization Grant Program as an effort to support digitization projects involving significant collections held by METRO member libraries in New York City and Westchester County. This initiative is supported in part by funds from the New York State Regional Bibliographic Databases Program.
Since that time, METRO has awarded over $674,000 in grants to support 61 digital projects. In 2014, METRO funded 9 new projects with approximately $80,000 in grant funding.
Information about the about the upcoming 2015/2016 Digitization Grant Program can be found at http://metro.org/digitization-grants-2015/.
