Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives: Enabling New Scholarship through Increasing Access to Unique Materials
The Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives program is a national competition to digitize and provide access to collections of rare or unique content in cultural memory institutions, with an emphasis on encouraging new forms of digital scholarship; promoting strategic partnerships; promoting best practices for ensuring the long-term availability and discoverability of digital content; and ensuring that digitized content is made available to the public as easily and completely as possible.
CLIR offers about 15 fellowships annually to support original-source doctoral dissertation research in the humanities or related social sciences.
This fellowship provides recent Ph.D. recipients a unique opportunity to develop as scholars, scientists, and teachers while learning about modern librarianship, digital resources, data stewardship, e-publishing, archives, and collection development.
This scholarship provides for a student of library and information science to attend the annual World Library and Information Congress of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA).
