The Lowcountry Digital Library encourages our partners to reach out regarding any digitization or digital library grant related proposals. We are happy to help review proposals prior to submission and help our partners craft appropriate language regarding digitization, metadata and descriptive practices, digital preservation, digital library technical infrastructure, copyright and creative commons licensing, any requested technology plans, and more. We are happy to provide advice on reasonable expectations for project timelines and make recommendations on equipment purchases, training, staffing, and best practices for any project.
LCDL has also successfully completed several large grants with organizations such as the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), and our ongoing partnership with the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation (GDDF).
