Proposals Sought for Digital Preservation Projects

The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP), a $100 million project led by the Library of Congress (LC), is seeking proposals for partnership projects that will support development of the digital preservation infrastructure. The first set of projects to be funded will focus on the selection and collection of at-risk and historically significant digital materials for which no analog equivalent exists. In addition, NDIIPP is seeking to develop a network of committed NDIIPP partners with defined roles and responsibilities to support the long-term collection and preservation of digital content.

In December 2002, the U.S. Congress approved NDIIPP's "Preserving Our Digital Heritage: Plan for the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program," making it possible for LC to proceed with the work of developing an infrastructure for the collection and preservation of digital materials.

Under this announcement (, awards of between $500,000 and $3 million will be made for periods of performance of 1 to 3 years. A resource contribution on the part of the applicant is required, as detailed in the announcement. The announcement outlines information on eligibility for awards and cost-sharing requirements, as well as procedures for submitting applications. Applications must be postmarked by Nov. 12, 2003.
