Date: Friday, October 29, 2010
Time: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Place: Capital District Library Council
Cost: Free

Grant Application Workshops will be conducted by the New York State Education Department, New York State Library, Division of Library Development, Conservation/ Preservation Discretionary Grant Program to assist prospective applicants in planning their 2011-2012 applications.

The Discretionary Grant Program provides modest financial support for projects that contribute to the preservation of significant research materials in libraries, archives, historical societies and other agencies within the State of New York, whether by conducting surveys, improving collection storage environments, reformatting or treating collections or other preservation activities described in the guidelines.

The workshop will include a review of the general guidelines and a step-by-step review of the instructions for preparing the application. Considerable time will be allowed for questions, and representative examples of successful (and unsuccessful) applications from previous years will be discussed.
