Following strong interest and some excellent applications from archives and other memory institutions over the last three years, the TWA Digitisation Grant has relaunched in 2019. We are very pleased to be increasing the fund this year and now grants of up to £6000 will be offered for UK libraries and special collections to digitise their holdings.
The TWA Digitisation Grant opens for applications on 19th June 2019 and welcomes applications from public, private, and special collections libraries based in the UK.
Last year’s esteemed judging panel will return to assess the applications and select the winners: including ARA chief executive – John Chambers; HLF appointed special advisor – Claire Adler; and senior digitisation consultant at TownsWeb Archiving – Paul Sugden.
The Grant can be used to fund the digitisation of bound books, manuscripts, oversize maps and plans, 35mm slides, microfilm/fiche, glass plate negatives, and other two-dimensional cultural heritage media.
The deadline for applications is 28th July 2019 with announcements of winners at the ARA on 28th August 2019.
