Access to Historical Records – Archival Projects Webinars Announced

I would like to bring to your attention three upcoming webinars regarding NHPRC’s Access to Historical Records – Archival Projects grant program. The webinar schedule and instructions appear at the end of the message.

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks projects that ensure online public discovery and use of historical records collections. All types of historical records are eligible, including documents, photographs, born-digital records, and analog audio and moving images. Projects may preserve and process historical records to:

– Create new online Finding Aids to collections
– Digitize historical records collections and make them freely available online

The NHPRC encourages organizations to actively engage the public in the work of the project.

A grant normally is for one or two years and for up to $100,000. The Commission expects to make up to 10 grants in this category for a total of up to $700,000. The cost share requirement for these grants is 25% of total project costs. Grants begin no earlier than 1 July 2017.

Deadlines: DRAFT 29 September 2016; FINAL 6 December 2016.
