New Initiatives - March 2020 BridgetOther Business

Steve Marks reported that he had been contacted by Art Rino and Loren Fontin of Our Digital World about a potential New Initiatives grant towards a digitization project of local newspapers. This would be similar to the NDNP project in the United States. This would help with standardization and would provide and open resource for all. 

Jeremy Heil, Sara Janes, and Dan Scott agreed this would be valuable both from a reference perspective as well as setting standards and providing guidance. Sarah Simpkin inquired about whether they were planning on doing the work in the plan. There was some discussion about what would be expected of the DC community.

Steve will see about getting something in writing from them for the community to review. Bridget will coordinate setting up an additional meeting time for discussion of the proposal if needed.
