Title: Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives

Sponsor: Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR)

Deadline: 3/1/13

Amount: $50,000-$500,000 (1-3yrs.)

The primary criterion the review panel uses to evaluate projects is their potential national impact on scholarship and teaching. The second and third criteria are: innovative and/or highly efficient approaches to description that either adopt established model practices or serve as models for others, and the adoption of workflow, outreach, and data sharing practices that maximize connections to scholarly and other user communities.
