Grants Closed

The Capital District Library Council has closed the current round of Regional Collections grants. All CDLC member institutions, including individual public and school libraries, were eligible to apply. The New York State Library Aid Program provided funding to make this grant possible.

Grant applications included requests to fund metadata projects and digital collection projects that contribute content to New York Heritage, NYS Historic Newspapers, and Empire ADC. Projects considered for funding should improve access to collections and content or raise the visibility of regional collections. Priority was given to projects that:

  • Highlight undiscovered collections in our region
  • Align with CDLC's strategic goals (see our Plan of Service)
  • Have matching funds
  • Are collaborative efforts between two or more CDLC members
  • Are composed of a complete digital collection
  • Are submitted by first-time applicants
  • Are composed of long and complete runs of newspapers that are on microfilm.
