Grant Writing Workshop For Preservation And Digitization Projects

The following was posted to a digitization discussion list.


Grant Writing Workshop For Preservation And Digitization Projects Sponsored by the Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB)

April 13, 2005
Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio

Join us for this Society of Ohio Archivists pre-conference workshop presented by Tom Clareson, Manager of Education & Planning, Digital Collection & Preservation Services Division of OCLC. This one-day workshop focuses on preparing for and writing grants for digitization and/or preservation projects. Due to sponsorship from the Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB), this workshop is being offered at a reduced cost ($35) to all participants.


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 details on 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 those elements. Depending on the participants' needs, this workshop can be customized to focus on preservation, digitization, or both; and to focus on a particular granting entity. Learn how to properly choose and prepare a grant proposal including:

* Evaluating appropriate funding sources
* Project preparation
* Hands-on practice in preparing a proposal
