What is the role of grant-writing in organizational strategic and development plans and ecosystems? How do you design a grant project that advances your mission and maximizes the potential of partnerships and collaboration? What factors should be considered when developing a project plan and budget? How do you identify funders who might have a programmatic interest in your project? How can you advocate for a project you care deeply about with an organization whose work is inspiring to you? What are successful strategies for telling a compelling story that engages grantmakers? How can you ensure broad, profession-wide impact of your grant projects?
This webinar brings together Becca Quon, Program Officer from the Council on Library and Information Resources, Cynthia Zollinger, Director of Project Development and Operations in the fundraising division at Boston public broadcaster GBH, and Dr. Michelle Caswell, archives professor and Co-Founder of the South Asian American Digital Archive, who brings years of experience writing successful grant proposals.

INTRO TO DIGITAL PRESERVATION AND FORMATS<https://www.eventbrite.com/e/intro-to-digital-preservation-formats-tickets-133772425927>
Wednesday, January 27

When a reel of film or videotape breaks, we can examine the reel, diagnose the problem, and repair it. What about when digital files degrade? This webinar will provide an introduction to digital files—their structure, specifications, history, identification, and uses—and will explore potential fixes to “broken” files. Attendees will learn about the organization of data in common audiovisual storage formats, how to recognize those formats, and how to look closer at a file.
Presenters: Annie Schweikert, Digital Archivist, Stanford Libraries; Ethan Gates, Software Preservation Analyst, Yale University Library; Jackie Jay, Audiovisual Archivist and Educator, Farallon Archival Consulting LLC; and Nicole Martin, Senior Manager of Archives and Digital Systems, Human Rights Watch/Associate Director, Moving Image Archiving Preservation (NYU MIAP).
