Sparks! Ignition Grants for Libraries

The University of Wisconsin (UW) will build, document, and test two portable, shippable equipment kits, one to digitize at-risk audio and video formats commonly held in cultural heritage institutions, and the other to perform data rescue from common obsolete digital storage media. The kits could be used by institutions without in-house equipment, as well as to provide hands-on experience to online LIS students. The project will produce detailed written and video documentation on building and using the kits to allow other institutions to replicate the model. The kits and documentation will be tested at UW's School of Library and Information Studies, as well as with partner organizations across Wisconsin.
