Full Description

This one-day workshop focuses on preparing and writing grants for digitization and/or preservation projects. Since most digitization and preservation grants are funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the session is based upon those particular granting entities' requirements. The instructor will discuss matching your institution's project with the appropriate funding agency and preparing to write a proposal. Developing proposals for state, local and foundation funding sources will also be addressed. The majority of the day will be spent covering the elements of a grant proposal and practicing writing and reviewing those elements.

By the end of this program, participants will:

• Understand how to establish a grants program
• Plan the grant proposal process including proposal writing, grant review, and grant management
• Develop the elements of a grant proposal
• Match projects to funding sources
 

Who should attend:

Librarians, archivists, and information professionals interested in learning about grant-funded opportunities for collection digitization and preservation
