Statewide Digitization Grant

Good news!  For the second time, the BSC Library Archives has been selected to participate in the State Historical Society of North Dakota’s Statewide Digitization Grant project.  Carolyn Twingley, Serials/ILL/Archives Librarian, wrote the successful grant application.

Two digital project archivists from SHSND will work with BSC Library Archives staff to select images from the Archives collection, collect descriptive data, and scan them.  The target is to scan 100 images, which can include everything from photographs to letters to pamphlets and other documents.   The records will be uploaded to the Digital Horizons site.  The project should be complete sometime in August.    

The ten institutions selected to participate in the project are: Barnes County Historical Society, Bismarck State College Library Archives, Bowman County Historical and Genealogical Society, Cass County Historical Society, Dickinson State University, Enderlin Historical Society and Museum, Pembina County Historical Society, Richland County Historical Society, and Walsh County Historic Preservation Commission.
