This is an important time to be in the business of providing access to historical records. More people than ever are connecting with historical documents, searching for and finding them online, using them in new ways, and adding new content. The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) of the National Archives is responding to these opportunities with revised grants programs to better serve the American people. But, we need your help with this effort!
The Commission has looked closely at the current state of the nations historical records and its own unique mission, expertise, and resources. One result is its forthcoming report, The Digital Citizen and the American Record, to be released later this month.
In addition, the NHPRC is revising its grant programs.
On our blog Annotation, we have posted overviews of each of our six new programs along with drafts of the new grant announcements.
- Access to Historical Records - projects to support preserving and processing primary source materials.
- Literacy & Engagement with Historical Records -- projects to explore ways to improve digital literacy and encourage citizen engagement with historical records.
- Online Publishing of Historical Records - projects to publish historical records online, including, compiling, digitizing, transcribing, and annotating documentary source materials.
- Publishing Historical Records Online: Transition Support - projects to assist print-only documentary editions and documentary editions available only through paid subscriptions to complete their projects and/or provide free online access.
- State Board Programming Grants - projects by state historical records advisory boards to enhance access to historical records, increase citizen engagement with records, and provide learning and development opportunities for students, citizens and professional archivists.
- State Government Electronic Records -- projects to accession, describe, preserve, and provide access to state government electronic records of enduring value.
