Wisconsin libraries are already well aware of the “Digitization of Library Historical Material” grant category available through LSTA. This post offers a few suggestions for an effective LSTA application.
Digitization Project Grants
On behalf of the Collaborative Digitization Work Group, Recollection Wisconsin is compiling information about grants available to public libraries for digitization projects, including this opportunity from the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
The annual mini-grant program from the Wisconsin Council for Local History and the Wisconsin Historical Society supports projects and activities that strengthen a local organization’s ability to manage and preserve historical collections. Only historical organizations that are affiliates of WHS are eligible to apply. Public libraries may develop projects in collaboration with local historical organizations, but the grant application must be submitted by the local affiliate.
