Digitize and Preserve

Digitization Awards

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.

We welcome nominations throughout the year!

To allow some flexibility during these tumultuous times, we have extended our deadline. Nominations are now due Monday, September 14, 2020.

Award letters for 2020/2021 will be sent in Fall 2020.

Please see our guidelines for participation for more information.
