The State Library of Ohio is pleased to announce the third round of Metadata Mini-Grants. This grant enables libraries to digitize and create new collections for the Digital Public Library of America. Applications are due by Wednesday, July 13, 2022.

Through work with Ohio Digital Network, Ohio’s DPLA Hub, and support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), libraries can apply for up to $4,999 to remediate metadata for collections that have already been digitized and create new digital collections.

DPLA brings digital collections from cultural heritage collections across the U.S. together in one place and makes them freely accessible to all. Libraries, archives, and museums in Ohio have already contributed 300,000 items to this national project, and with this grant, your organization can be a part of the project, too!

Register for an informational webinar to be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at 10 a.m.

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29, 2022.
