JISC digitisation programme invites proposals: Enriching digital resources

News summary

The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) invites institutions to submit funding proposals for projects to be funded through an additional strand of its Digitisation Programme. This particular strand, which has funding of up to £2 million, is aimed at developing the range and quality of digital resources available to the JISC community by digitising analogue collections and enhancing existing digital collections for use in learning, teaching and research.

It is envisaged that a number of small scale projects will be funded via this strand. JISC will provide funds of approximately £50,000-£100,000 to each successful proposal. Successful proposals must provide matched funding. This matched funding can include the indirect and directly allocated costs associated with the project.

The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is 12 noon on Tuesday 22 July 2008.

Projects must start by 1 October 2008 and run for up to 12 months. All projects must be complete by 30 September 2009.
