Digitization for Small Institutions Scholarships for Illinois Archivists Illinois State Archives

The Digitization for Small Institutions Scholarships have sold out. The board hopes to offer this opportunity again in the spring.

The Illinois State Historical Records Advisory Board (ISHRAB) is hosting "Digitization for Small Institutions" for 25 Illinois archivists and archival volunteers, presented by LYRASIS. This four hour online course, taught over two 2-hour sessions, will be held on January 24th and 26th from 2-4 pm.

The course covers the basics of project planning, equipment selection, digitization preparation, and technical information relevant to starting a digitization program or project. Persons or organizations who are looking into undertaking a digitization project or who will be seeking a grant to fund a digitization project are encouraged to take this class.

ISHRAB and its representatives will award scholarships on a first-come, first-served basis until all 25 seats have been filled. The completed application form may be submitted by U.S. mail, FAX, or email. All decisions made by the ISHRAB and its representatives will be final. The deadline to apply is January 16, 2017.

Funds for this opportunity are provided by a State Board Programming Grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
