      archival print and digital collections. One of the challenges and
      opportunities with this work is funding for these project. This

      participants about funding options available and hear the experience of three libraries as they were awarded preservation and digitization grants.

      Timothy Chester, director emeritus of the Grand Rapids Public Museum will speak on grant funding for cultural heritage collections.

      A panel of Michigan library staff will speak on three recent

      Central Michigan University on a newspaper digitization grant, Alice Cruz of Orion Township Public Library on an IMLS preservation grant for artifacts, and Stacy Nowicki of Kalamazoo College on 2 NEH preservation grants.

      digitization areas will be available.
