Georgia State University Library Awarded Digitization Grants The Georgia State University (GSU) Library was awarded an Express Library Digitization grant from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. The $2,825 award will fund the digitization of the Terri Wilder Papers and the Nancy N. Boothe Papers, both of which are held by the Archives for Research on Women and Gender in GSU Library’s Special Collections and Archives. The collections were chosen for their research value in the area of women’s and LGBT health issues. In addition, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission awarded GSU Library a grant of $121,418 to digitize and transcribe more than two hundred hours of recorded interviews and footage from the production of The Uprising of ’34, the 1995 documentary about the legacy of the General Textile Strike of 1934. The interviews will be presented online alongside their transcripts using the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer. Brooklyn Historical Society Awarded NHPRC Grant With funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, Brooklyn Historical Society has launched Voices of Generations: Investigating Brooklyn’s Cultural Identity, a project to digitize, process, catalogue, and make more accessible nearly five hundred interviews that are part of ten oral history collections documenting the histories of Brooklyn’s diverse ethnic and cultural communities. Highlights include two collections that focus on Brooklyn’s Latino/a history and an early 1990s collection of interviews with Brooklynites affected by HIV/AIDS.
