Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives: Enabling New Scholarship through Increasing Access to Unique Materials is a contest put on by the Council on Library and Information Resources. The goal is to digitize collections of value held by institutions that don’t otherwise have the resources to digitize them so the public can have easy access to these unique collections. Between $50,00 and $250,000 can be awarded to a single institution, and up to $500,000 can be awarded to a collaborative team of institutions. The 2015 cycle is over, but information on the 2016 cycle will be posted on their website soon.
