Abstract

Responding to a call for proposals concerning grant funding for digital collections projects from the ACRL Digital Scholarship Section's Digital Collection Discussion Group, this presentation discusses the NEH-funded project to stabilize and digitize the Keith/Albee Collection held by the University of Iowa Libraries. It includes a brief overview of the University of Iowa as an institution; a general description of the collection; discussion of the project planning and grant writing timeline; details regarding the award notification and project implementation process; and some specifics of how the “best laid plans” didn’t necessarily line up with reality.
