California Grant Opportunites

We want to make California special librarians aware of a competitive grant opportunity for all California libraries with special collections, including public, academic and ones in museums. It is named the Local History Digital Resources Project (LHDRP) and makes it easy to get a library’s cultural heritage materials online.

If your library is awarded this LSTA grant, it will receive funding to scan 200 items, as well as free training on copyright, metadata, and CONTENTdm. Your images will have great visibility when made freely available on the Online Archive of California and Calisphere. And your community will value the service they provide in collecting and preserving its history!

Share your collections and build support with LHDRP

The LHDRP application process is short and painless. Just tell us what you want to digitize and its relevance to California history.

The application materials for LHDRP 2011-12 is available on the CSL LSTA application page: http://www.library.ca.gov/grants/lsta/apply.html

The due date is April 1st

You may find a flyer here http://www.cdlib.org/services/dsc/projects/docs/lhdrp_flier_2011_FINAL.pdf , which we hope you will share with all who might be interested.

Thank you for your time and assistance in promoting this grant.
