National Heritage Digitization Strategy: Update

You may recall that a funding call Digitizing Canadian Collections, with a one-time $1 million available to cultural heritage organizations in Canada to support digitization, closed on 12 June 2018.

Information from the Secretariat is that over 200 applications were received, more than was anticipated. It shows the interest and need for such digitization.

Internal review is underway looking at compliance. An external review committee will meet in September. Announcement of results is expected in late September or October.
