 Digitization Grants

Digitization Grants April 12th, 2024


South Central Regional Library Council's Board of Trustees is pleased to announce a 2024-2025 grant round for regional digitization projects. Funded projects will start after July 1, 2024 and conclude by June 30, 2025.

Governing and affiliate SCRLC members are encouraged to submit projects that allow materials to be accessed regionally through New York Heritage, New York State Historic Newspapers, the Empire Archival Discovery Cooperative, or the 360 degree Empire State Immersive Experience (ESIE).

For 2024-2025, applications are especially encouraged for:

●     partnerships increasing representation of and with communities that have been historically and systematically oppressed;

●     geographically underrepresented communities in the SCRLC region;

●     innovative approaches to availing digitized collections, e.g., walking tours, virtual tours through ESIE, or HistoryForge participation.

SCRLC can serve as a vendor for projects. Reach out to Claire for a quote to use in the grant application.

All proposals received will be presented to a review panel comprised of expert individuals from outside the SCRLC region for evaluation and funding recommendations. Individual applications are limited to $5,000; partnership applications, to $8,000.

The application packet is available in Word or PDF format at our website, (mid-page). Applications must be completed and submitted electronically to Claire Lovell, SCRLC's Digital Services Librarian, at by Friday, April 12, 2024. Please contact Claire with any questions.
