Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB)
Grants of up to $7,500 to Utah nonprofit organizations, government agencies, libraries, museums, archives, and IHEs for historic preservation projects. Funding is intended to process, preserve, and increase access to the State's historical records. Grants may be used for archival activities that ensure the sustainability, care, and preservation of documents, collections, and records. All grant projects require a public access component.
Preservation Projects: Preservation is meant to protect historical materials from damage, harm, decay, or destruction in order to minimize the loss of information and extend the life of the materials. Preservation projects are those that are intended to process and protect historical records. This includes the arrangement and description of archival collections that are unprocessed, improperly stored, or otherwise poorly preserved, as well as the conservation of damaged records and the implementation of solutions that deal with the preservation of electronic records.
Digitization projects are eligible as preservation projects so long as the goal is to preserve records in fragile condition. Material should already be arranged and described according to archival standards so that existing information can serve as metadata. While continued access to original materials may be limited after digitization due to their fragile nature, the original records must be retained and maintained. Digitization alone does not guarantee preservation. Applicants should account for their long term preservation plans of the digital master files in their proposals. Projects must adhere to best practices for digital formatting and metadata standards to ensure the sustainability of digital collections.
Access Projects: Access is defined as the ability of the repository and its users to locate relevant information through adequate processing of materials and the use of catalogs, indexes, finding aids, or other tools. Most USHRAB-funded projects are primarily access projects. Access projects are intended to give the institution intellectual and physical control over a collection in order to make the information contained within available to users, including researchers and the general public. This includes the arrangement and description of unprocessed or poorly processed collections, the creation of finding aids or indexes for previously processed collections, or the digitization and online hosting of frequently accessed material.
Digitization projects are eligible as access projects if they make use of existing holdings of locally or regionally significant historical records collections. The materials should already be arranged and described according to archival standards so that projects can use existing information to serve as metadata. Original materials must be retained and maintained. Applicants should account for their long term preservation plans of the digital master files in their proposals. Projects must adhere to best practices for digital formatting and metadata standards to ensure the sustainability of digital collections.
