New Fellowship for Digital Collections<https://networks.h-net.org/node/950/discussions/138278/new-fellowship-digital-collections>
by Joseph Adelman
Announcing the Lapidus Initiative Fellowships for Digital Collections

The Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture seeks proposals from scholars at all levels, in partnership with special collections libraries and historical societies, for Lapidus Initiative Fellowships for Digital Collections. In concert with other OI projects promoting creative use of digital tools and materials, these fellowships are intended to bring scholars and collections specialists together to make collections available for digital scholarship.

The fellowship will award up to $5,000 to the holding library and to the scholar whose research relies on, or will be greatly enhanced by, the digitization of a collection or partial collection of materials related to early America, broadly conceived, before 1820. Scholars must partner with special collections libraries that will digitize the needed materials with the funds from the fellowship.

For the purposes of this application, digitization should be considered broadly. It may include (but is not limited to): the photographing of manuscripts, newspapers, graphic materials, or rare books; the scanning of index cards; the cataloging of rare materials; the enhancement of digital catalog records; or the inventorying of manuscript collections. We welcome project proposals employing materials from libraries and archives of all sizes. If you have questions about this program or the application process, including how to construct a detailed budget, please contact Martha Howard at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

Applications should be submitted via the OI website by January 9, 2017.

More information and a link to the application form are available here<http://oieahc.wm.edu/lapidus/digitalcollections/index.html>.
