National Endowment for the Humanities Grant Opportunity

NEH Humanities Collections And Reference Resources Grants – Applications Due July 19th



The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access is accepting applications for the Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program.

Grants support projects to create intellectual access to collections of rare books, manuscript and archival materials, born-digital records, maps, still and moving images, sound recordings, art, and objects of material culture.

Projects may address the holdings or activities of a single institution or may involve partnerships between organizations. Collaboration between humanities experts and information professionals is essential to broaden the scope of, and audiences for, proposed collections or reference resources. You should design a project that facilitates sharing, exchange, and the interoperability of humanities information and products, as well as ensures their long-term availability.

Projects should expand participation in cultural heritage and promote engagement with primary sources.

Awards also support the creation of reference works, online resources, and research tools of major importance to the humanities. Eligible activities are wide-ranging.

HCRR advances scholarship, education, and public programming in the humanities by helping libraries, archives, museums, and historical organizations across the country steward essential collections of books and manuscripts, photographs, sound recordings and moving images, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, art and material culture, and digital objects. The program strengthens efforts to extend the reach of such materials and make their intellectual content widely accessible. Awards also support the creation of reference resources that facilitate the use of cultural materials, from works that provide basic information quickly to tools that synthesize and codify knowledge of a subject for in-depth investigation.

    Using The Community History Archives

    Join The Conversation!

    A community is more than just a group of people that happen to live in the same place; it is a group of individuals that share a feeling of fellowship with others as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. That is why we created CommunityHistoryArchives.com. Community History Archives is a “community of communities,” connecting like-minded individuals and institutions that share our love of history and a passion for connecting our communities to their past!
