The Digital Preservation Outreach & Education Network (DPOE-N) is excited to announce two new opportunities for funding available to cultural heritage professionals and institutions located in the United States and U.S. territories for digital preservation training and hardware support.
About DPOE-N Funding
DPOE-N offers professional development support for cultural heritage professionals to attend online workshops and face-to-face training (when traveling is appropriate) focused on digital preservation and access. Funding can be used within a network of available professional development providers and can cover more than one workshop.
DPOE-N staff are also available to work with you to develop a professional development program that fits your needs. For more information on professional development support, and to apply, please visit: https://www.dpoe.network/professional-development-support/
DPOE-N has also set aside a modest amount of funding for emergency hardware support to small cultural heritage institutions that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and are in need of new hardware to ensure the persistence of digital collections with enduring value. For more information about emergency hardware support, please visit: https://www.dpoe.network/emergency-hardware-support/
Interested in applying?
Deadlines for both funding opportunities are rolling. Our grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation provides funding until June 2022!
DPOE-N staff is available to help you with the application process and to answer any questions you may have. Please contact us at dpo...@pratt.edu.
DPOE-N is a network of training resources available to cultural heritage professionals nationwide to enhance their digital preservation knowledge and skills. We are motivated by the pressing need for libraries, archives, and museums to collect, preserve, and provide access to born-digital materials. DPOE-N is hosted by the Pratt Institute School of Information in collaboration with the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and is generously funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
