Sparks! Ignition Grants for Libraries

The State Library of North Carolina will partner with the North Carolina State Archives, North Carolina Libraries for Virtual Education, and the libraries of both Elon University and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to develop an open source software tool. This tool will allow libraries, archives, and other organizations to more easily collect and deposit digital content into a preservation repository. The tool will build upon other existing open source tools but will incorporate new functions to help organizations with limited resources more easily complete many of the time-consuming technical processes that are necessary before digital files can be stored in a digital archive.
