by Eleanor Burns via “CBR“
The EMC Heritage Trust Project helps conservation of information heritage through digitisation around the world.
EMC has announced three organisations as grant recipients of the 2014 EMC Heritage Trust Project.
The EMC Heritage Trust Project helps advance the conservation of information heritage through digitisation around the world, allowing readily accessible online research and education.
The grants will support projects that practice and encourage the stewardship of cultural information in local communities in the UK, Canada and India.
The grant recipients include The Royal Institution, who will use the grant to digitise all Christmas Lecture recordings from 1966 on, making them available to audiences around the world.
The Nikkei National Museum in Canada will now be able to make the collection available to researchers around the world, through digitisation. Through its EMC Heritage Trust Grant, the Museum plans to add 2,000-4,000 new items to its online database. . . .
