NHPRC Digital Dissemination of Archival Collections Grants


DEADLINE: December 4, 2014   (Optional draft deadline: October 1, 2014)

National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) desires to make historical records of national significance to the United States broadly available by disseminating digital surrogates on the internet.

Digital Dissemination of Archival Collections projects may focus on the papers of major figures from American life or cover broad historical movements in politics, military, business, social reform, the arts, and other aspects of the national experience. The historical value of the records and their expected usefulness to broad audiences must justify the costs of the project. The Commission will not consider proposals that charge for access.

Eligible Activities:
Grants are awarded for digitizing documentary source materials. Applicants may digitize a single collection or set of collections for online dissemination. Such online publications should provide basic access to collections. Collaborations among repositories are encouraged.
