Considering a small digitization project, but don’t have the funds? You might look at funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, which gives Preservation Assistance Grants to small and mid-sized institutions, including libraries, archival repositories, and colleges and universities, to enhance their ability to preserve and care for their humanities collections.
