Metadata Mini-Grant

The State Library of Ohio is pleased to announce a new grant program for libraries enabling them to digitize and create new collections for the Digital Public Library of America.

Through work with Ohio Digital Network, Ohio’s DPLA Hub, and support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, libraries who are not currently contributing to DPLA can apply for up to $4,999 to remediate metadata for collections that have already been digitized and create new digital collections.

DPLA brings digital collections from cultural heritage collections all across the U.S. to one place, and makes them freely accessible to all. Libraries, archives, and museums in Ohio already contribute over 200,000 items to this national project, and with this grant, your organization can be a part of the project, too!

Applications are due by Monday November 2, 2020.

You can find more information and apply on the State Library’s website, or watch the informational webinar below.
