Grants of up to $8,000 to Washington academic, public, and tribal libraries for preservation initiatives. Funding is intended to ensure the preservation of significant collections. Funding is intended for a wide range of proposals to connect residents to local history, by carrying out a variety of digital initiatives of archival and special collections of historic and cultural significance.
The Washington State Library (WSL) seeks proposals that: 1) Develop institutional capacity to carry out and sustain digital initiatives, and: 2) Support regional and/or statewide approaches to digitization and the use of digital cultural heritage collections.
Project outputs should be openly accessible to the public. Collaboration and formal partnerships are encouraged, but not required. Proposals using existing standards and best practices, and supporting a regional approach to the preservation and dissemination of digital collections (e.g., contributing records to a Digital Public Library of America service hub) will receive priority consideration for grant awards.
This grant opportunity may also be used by existing or prospective institutions to develop Washington Rural Heritage (WRH) collections. Libraries that would like to participate in the WRH program should commit to digitizing at least one hundred (100) items by the end of the grant cycle.
