Our Collections, Our Communities: New Outreach Assistance


What is the purpose of digitization and preservation without community access and connection?

Want to develop an exhibit?
Host a community digitization day?
Develop curriculum?
Sponsor an archives crawl?
Host a screening or talk? 

We're offering $5,000 awards to promote your collections!

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."

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.
