Digitize and Preserve

Digitization Awards

The 2019/2020 application for free digitization is now closed, but we welcome nominations throughout the year!

Do you have collections related to local/regional/state history that you'd like to digitize and share online? 
For example:
Audiovisual recordings?
Newspapers?
Letters?
Photograph Albums?

Does your institution already have a digitization program and need help with a digital preservation plan?

We offer California-based organizations free digitization services, including long-term preservation and online access, for archival materials - books, newspapers, photographs, audiovisual recordings, and more - that tell the incredible stories of the Golden State. We also provide free services for existing digital collections, including technical advice and guidance.

The next deadline for nominations is Monday, August 31, 2020.

Award letters for 2020/2021 will go out in the fall.

Please see our guidelines for participation for more information.
