The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) today announced the award of more than $4.1 million to fund 18 projects for 2019 Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives awards. Fifty-eight institutions located in seventeen U.S. states and Canada will be involved in the projects, which cover subjects ranging from natural history and biodiversity to indigenous history, public media, and modern art. This is the first year in which an awarded project includes Canadian partner institutions.
This is the fifth group of projects supported by the Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives awards program, which is generously funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Digitizing Hidden Collections program, successor to the Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives program, supports the creation of digital representations of unique content of high scholarly significance that will be discoverable and usable as elements of a coherent national collection.
