Our Collections, Our Communities: New Outreach Assistance

What is the purpose of digitization and preservation without community access? In order to foster community discovery, engagement, and use of digital collections, we are pleased to announce a new funding opportunity called "Our Collections, Our Communities."

The California State Library invites California Revealed partners to apply for up to $5,000 in funding on a reimbursement basis for a project that integrates California Revealed collections into a new or existing outreach initiative.

Processing/Cataloging Assistance

In order to "reveal" more of California's history, the State Library invites smaller libraries, archives, and history museums to apply for up to $10,000 for a project to process and catalog California-related library and archival materials from their unprocessed collection backlogs. Awarded projects can begin as early as June 1, 2019 and must be completed by August 31, 2019.
