From a CLIR Announcement:

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) today announced the award of $4.02 million to fund 16 digitization projects through the Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives program. Twenty-eight institutions located in nineteen U.S. states and one U.S. territory will be involved in the projects covering subjects ranging from hip hop, fashion, and public media to plant specimens and whale reproduction.

This is the sixth 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 collections that contribute to broad representation and a more complete understanding of history.
