2016 LSTA Indiana Memory Digitization Grants Awarded along with other projects!
The Indiana State Library has selected 13 projects to receive $229,510 in LSTA funding for the 2016-2017 grant year. Using grant funds, public, academic and special libraries will be contributing collections with a uniquely Indiana focus. This year’s projects will feature a number of topics, including Indiana’s automobile and limestone industries, LGBTQ histories, the Harmonists, newspapers, court records, architectural drawings, Hanover College history, and the USS LST Ship Memorial. Three collections will be focused on the histories of African Americans in the state, including South Bend, Bedford, and Indianapolis’s Bethel AME Church. The Indiana State Library will also continue their collaboration with Indiana State University to establish InDiPres, a statewide digital preservation solution for digital collections.
Many of the projects will invite Hoosiers to contribute materials during scan-a-thons held throughout the Bicentennial year. All materials digitized through the projects will eventually be available on Indiana Memory, the state’s digital library, and the Digital Public Library of America. For questions about the grants or Indiana Memory, please contact Connie Rendfeld at (317) 232-3694 or email@example.com.
