FREE Webinar – What Reviewers are Looking for in Preservation and Digitization Grants

Greetings Colleagues,

I trust you’re well. Today I’m celebrating Professor Arthur Lewis of Princeton University. In 1979, he is the first African-American to receive the Nobel Prize in economics, and the first African-American to receive the Nobel Prize in any category other than peace.

FREE Webinar – What Reviewers are Looking for in Preservation and Digitization Grants

Because of your attendance and participation at the HBCU Library Alliance Membership Meeting Pre-Conference and interest in preservation and digitization grants, Tom Clareson, Senior Consultant for Digital and Preservation Services at LYRASIS, will present a free two-hour webinar, “What Reviewers are Looking for in Preservation and Digitization Grants” on Tuesday, February 5th, 2:00 – 4:00 ET.


Session Description:  This two-hour webinar will cover what granting agencies and their reviewers are looking for in various parts of grant proposals.  The session will focus on grant topics including development of the methodology/work plan for a grant; project sustainability issues; and impact/evaluation of your grant.  There will be ample time for discussion/chat on specific questions about grants. This session will help you prepare for Spring 2013 grant submission deadlines
