Digital POWRR Institute Application
The Institutes continue the POWRR mission of empowering librarians and archivists from small and mid-sized institutions to build skills for curating and preserving digital collections. Institutes will incorporate lectures and discussions with expert practitioners drawn from the field, hands-on technical training, engagement with institutional case studies, and one-on-one consultation with instructors on the development of a personalized and actionable digital preservation plan for each participant.

As was the case with prior POWRR workshops, the Institutes will be offered to participants completely free of charge, and financial assistance to help cover travel and lodging expenses will be offered to participants demonstrating need. Attendance at each event will be limited to 30 participants due to the highly intensive nature of the Institute.

POWRR hopes to especially encourage attendance by those serving ethnically and geographically-defined populations that have often struggled to preserve their materials, in part due to a lack of financial resources and available expertise.

Please complete this question only if you want to be considered for a scholarship: Through the generosity of the IMLS, there is some funding available for travel scholarships to help those with financial need to attend. If you lack institutional support to travel to an Institute, or require partial funding in order to participate, please provide details on how a scholarship would enable you to attend. Please also include an initial estimate of the cost of your travel for which you would request assistance.
If accepted, would you be interesting in us helping to match you with other participants for lodging/transportation sharing options at the Institute? (NOTE: you do not need a scholarship in order to say yes to this)
