Grant Description

Humanities Collections and Resources combines support for activities that were funded previously through two separate grant categories: Grants to Preserve and Create Access to Humanities Collections and Reference Materials Grants. The program also provides support for activities funded previously through the Division’s Research and Development category. The possibilities presented by advances in digital technology require a new grant category that encompasses the range of activities funded through the previous programs and encourages the development of digital methods and tools to increase the availability and long-term preservation of humanities collections and resources. Grants support projects that preserve and create intellectual access to such collections as books, journals, manuscript and archival materials, maps, still and moving images, sound recordings, art, and objects of material culture. To ensure that significant collections are preserved and available for research, education, or public programming in the humanities, applications may be submitted for the following activities: digitizing collections; arranging and describing archival and manuscript collections; cataloging collections of printed works, photographs, recorded sound, moving image, art, and material culture; preservation reformatting; deacidification of collections; and preserving and improving access to humanities resources in “born digital” form.
