We digitized it—what’s next? Learning from and making use of digitized hidden collections.
About the event
Since 2015, with the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the CLIR Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives program has awarded approximately $4 million annually to archives, historical societies, libraries, museums, and other collecting organizations to support the digitization of rare and unique materials holding significance for research, learning, and the public good.
In autumn 2022, in cooperation with its Digital Library Federation (DLF) program, CLIR will host a two-day event for grant recipients to share lessons from their project work and talk about ‘what’s next’. The symposium, originally scheduled for November 2020 but postponed due to the ongoing pandemic, will be located in Baltimore, MD. Attendance will be open to the public.
A day of free virtual programming was held on November 13, 2020 — revisit 5 for 5: Conversations on Five Years of Digitizing Hidden Collections.
