NEH Preservation and Access Research and Grants
The Division of Preservation and Access of the National Endowment for the
Humanities will be accepting applications for grants in the Research and
Development grant competition.
Eligible projects may include efforts to:
* Develop technical standards, best practices, and tools for
preserving and creating access to humanities collections.
* Explore more effective scientific and technical methods of
preserving humanities collections.
* Develop automated procedures and computational tools to integrate
humanities data in disparate online resources.
* Investigate and test new ways of providing digital access to
humanities materials that are not amenable to standard modes of digitization.
NEH especially encourages applications that address the following areas:
* Digital Preservation: how to preserve digital humanities
materials, including those for which no analog counterparts exist.
* Recorded Sound and Moving Image Collections: how to preserve and
increase access to the record of the twentieth century contained in these
* Preventive Conservation: how to protect and slow the deterioration
of humanities collections through the use of sustainable preservation
The new guidelines, which include sample proposal narratives, may be found

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
