The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) is pleased to announce the first round of awardees for the Seed Grant Program for digitization projects on the Caribbean. Using membership funds, the dLOC Seed Grant Program will award five partners a total of $17,000 including support for training, equipment and staffing. The dLOC Seed Grant Program provides initial funding for activities that build local programs and support online open access digital resources for researchers, students, and the general public by supporting contributions to the dLOC repository.

These small grants will help partners leverage existing resources to complete long awaited digitization and preservation projects, and as part of the start-up process for new projects. Often a small amount of funding can make a tremendous impact to provide the needed support to complete a project – be it staff, equipment or training on a new process. As the Library Director of The College of The Bahamas stated, “this funding will greatly assist in bringing this project to light and to heightening the awareness of the contributions made by Bahamians to the WWII efforts.”
