Dear members -

Sharing this information (available in English only) from the Council on
Library and Information Resources (CLIR) <> at the
request of Dr. Guy Berthiaume:

On Monday, March 1, the Council on Library and Information Resources will
announce the opening of the application period for its Digitizing Hidden
Special Collections and Archives
<> regranting
program. Since its establishment in 2015, the program has distributed over
$US 24 million to digitize collections of rare and unique content in
cultural memory institutions.

For the first time this year, Canadian nonprofit institutions are eligible
to apply for an award. Previously, they were allowed to participate only as
supporting partners to US-based institutions.

Also this year, the program will have a thematic focus on collections
documenting the hidden histories of people who have previously be
under-examined or unknown to broader audiences.

I thought this might be of interest to your members—please feel free to
share with them. You can read more about the program here
application information will become visible on Monday). Note that there
will be informational webinars on March 17 and March 30, and that initial
applications are due April 30.
