Four years ago the TWA Digitisation Grant was created in support of the cultural heritage community. We identified funding as one of the primary barriers to heritage digitisation projects that UK heritage institutions faced when attempting to digitise and digitally preserve their collections.
We received so many fantastic applications last year, from institutions holding all manner of cultural heritage collections, so we have decided to run our digitisation grant again in 2020.
What changed in 2020?
This year Townsweb Archiving will be offering three primary grants of equal value in order to provide as many organisations an opportunity to digitise their valuable collections. There has been an addition to the marking criteria this year which TownsWeb Archiving would like to focus on. This includes a section focusing on accessibility to the digitised collection so that as many users far and wide can benefit from from the digitisation projects we fund.
