Dear colleagues,

The Endangered Archives Programme at the British Library is now accepting grant applications for the next round of funding. 

The Endangered Archives Programme seeks to preserve cultural heritage and make it available to as wide an audience as possible. We fund digitisation projects to record the content of archives, which can include rare printed sources, manuscripts, visual materials, or audio recordings. We aim to enhance local capacity to manage and preserve archival collections into the future, and therefore all applications must involve at least one archival partner in the country where the material is based.

We welcome applications for funding on an annual basis. The current deadline for preliminary applications is 18 November 2022. Application forms and guidelines can be found at eap.bl.uk. The Endangered Archives Programme is administered by the British Library and supported by Arcadia, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin.
