The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre is pleased to award funding for eight digitization projects through the Indigitization Grant Program. Please visit 2016 Summer Projects to learn more about the projects.
Indigitization is a collaborative initiative between Indigenous communities and organizations, the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, the Museum of Anthropology, and the School for Library, Archival and Information Studies to facilitate capacity building in Indigenous information management. This project is committed to clarifying processes and identifying issues in the conservation, digitization, and management of Indigenous community knowledge. It does so by providing information resources through the Indigitization toolkit and by enabling community-led audio cassette digitization projects through grant funding and training. Indigitization seeks to grow and work with a network of practitioners to develop effective practices for the management of digital heritage that support the goals of individual communities.
