Just got word that IMLS, Institute of Museum and Library Services, has awarded the ibiblio-led project grant support to the tune of $129,242.

IMLS says:

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Information and Library Science — Chapel Hill, NC
Year: 2006
Amount: $129,424
Grant: National Leadership Grants for Libraries – Building Digital Resources

Expanding on the work of a previous IMLS grant, UNC’s digital library will archive, digitize, and video stream 35 new documentary films. Partnering with Folkstreams, Inc. and the University’s Southern Folklore Collection, the project will produce a guide to best practices in video digitization; add 20 new video clips to its Video Aids for Film Preservation; and create portals, guides, and outreach materials for senior citizens and teachers. Rare documentaries will provide knowledge of American folklife to these two distinct audiences using the easy-to-access Website.
