Workshop - Grants for Digitization and Preservation

Date: Thursday, April 17, 2008
Time: 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Place: Capital District Library Council
Cost: $40 for CDLC members, $60 for nonmembers (includes lunch)
Instructor: Tom Clareson, Program Director for New Initiatives at Palinet

This one-day workshop focuses on preparing for and writing grants for digitization and/or preservation projects. Since most digitization and preservation grants are funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the session is based upon those particular granting entities' requirements. Developing proposals for state, local and foundation funding sources will also be addressed. The workshop includes matching your institution's project with the appropriate funding agency, and preparing to write a proposal. The majority of the day is spent covering the elements of a grant proposal and practicing writing and reviewing those elements.

At the end of this workshop you will be able to:
-Understand how to establish a grants program
-Plan the grant proposal process including proposal writing, grant review and grant management
-Develop the elements of a grant proposal
-Match projects to funding sources

The registration deadline is Friday, April 11. Payment (checks payable to CDLC) must be sent along with your registration. The registration form can be found here.
