The National Historical Publications and Records Commission will be hold
two conference calls to answer questions about its Digitizing Historical
Records grants. In brief, these grants support:
"The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks
proposals that use cost-effective methods to digitize nationally
significant historical record collections and make the digital versions
freely available online. Projects must make use of existing holdings of
historical repositories and consist of entire collections or series. The
materials should already be available to the public at the archives and
described so that projects can re-use existing information to serve as
metadata for the digitized collection."
The full announcement is available here:
Applications are due on June 3, 2010. NHPRC staff will review drafts if
they are submitted by April 1, 2010.
The times for the calls are: Tuesday, February 2, 2010
3:00 PM (EST)
Wednesday, February 10, 2010
4:00 PM (EST)
