Retrospective Conversion

Retrospective Conversion Regional Bibliographic Database Grants are available to all METRO member libraries in New York City and Westchester.  Awards are competitive and based on criteria established by METRO's Information Systems Advisory Council. Grant recommendations are presented by the Advisory Council to the METRO Board of Trustees for funding. RBDB grants have totaled more than $50,000 to-date.
Due to a decrease in New York state funds for the Regional Bibliographic Database program, this year METRO will not support grants for Retrospective Conversion. Instead, all available funds will be distributed for collaborative digitization projects
