2022 Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium

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 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, CLIR hosted 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, took place October 12-13, 2022 in Baltimore, MD in conjunction with the DLF Forum. Attendance was open to the public. A proceedings of the event was published in October 2023.

A day of free virtual programming was held on November 13, 2020 — revisit  5 for 5: Conversations on Five Years of Digitizing Hidden Collections.
