Directors of archives, libraries, museums, historical societies may apply for project awards valued at $200 to $1,000 to preserve their collections via digitization and place them on the University of North Texas’ Portal to Texas History.

The UNT Libraries, which administers the portal, is accepting applications for its Rescuing Texas History program through Aug. 15 (Thursday). Twenty awards, which are the value of the digitization services provided by staff members in the UNT Libraries’ Digital Projects Unit, are available. Ten of the awards will be given specifically to newspaper archives. The other 10 will be given to other collections consisting of print photographs, photo negatives and print or handwritten documents.
