Hello Everyone,

My library is working on applying for a grant which will enable us to purchase scanners and pay experts, so we can host local community heritage days in which citizens bring in their historic photos and documents for scanning. The items will then be coded with metadata and hosted online as a local history collection (with permission by item owners). It is difficult to set the budget since the amount of items we will receive is unknown. Have any of you hosted a similar event? If so, how many people and items did you receive? What did you do with them in the long run? Did you turn them into programs or a collection or just give a digital copy to the owner? Also, if you are willing to share a copy of your budget and proposal that would be awesome!

Thanks for any guidance you can provide. You all are always very helpful.

Have a wonderful day,

Nyama Y. Marsh
