St. Peter's Cathedral Archives, Charlottetown, DHCP Grant

St Peter’s Cathedral in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island received funding from the Documentary Heritage Communities Program of Library and Archives Canada in 2016 to produce a strategic plan (pdf) for its archival operations, covering a 3- to 5-year time horizon.
As announced on Thursday the Cathedral Archives was awarded $99,558 DHCP funding to implement the plan for "Processing and Providing Access to 150 Years of Archives"
Digitization is part of the plan, a small part.  Priorities for digitization will be identified based on strategic needs, such as the Cathedral anniversary in 2019, and procedures developed, implemented and incorporated for ongoing digitization activities as a continuing archival task.
Congratulations to the Archives for the deliberate approach which undoubtedly helped in gaining the DHCP funding.
