The METRO Digitization Grant program (http://metro.org/digitization-grants/) is dedicated to supporting collaborative digitization projects that facilitate the creation of digital materials relating to the history and culture of New York City and Westchester. Please join us for this webinar highlighting three recent METRO-funded projects. Attendees will hear first-hand from project participants about their experiences.
