FUNDING/OPPORTUNITY: Digitizing Hidden Collections

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) announced its call for proposals for the 2023-2024 cycle of Digitizing Hidden Collections: Amplifying Unheard Voices. From the call:

Launched in 2021, the program is designed to support efforts to digitize materials that deepen public understanding of the histories of people of color and other communities and populations whose work, experiences, and perspectives have been insufficiently recognized or unattended.

These often “hidden” histories include, but are not limited to, those of Black, Indigenous, Latine, and other People of Color; Women; Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Non-binary, and other Genderqueer people and communities; Immigrants; Displaced populations; Blind, Deaf, and Disabled people and communities; and Colonized, Disenfranchised, Enslaved, and Incarcerated people.

The application award site includes information about past and upcoming informational webinars, application guidelines, and the application portal. Initial Applications are due by November 1, 2023.
