For those libraries, historical societies and museums looking to preserve their history, the University of North Texas is offering a unique opportunity.

The Portal to Texas History at the University of North Texas is accepting applications for its Rescuing Texas History Mini-Grant program.

Each grant will provide up to $1,000 of digitization services to libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and other groups that house historical materials.

All of the materials will be scanned at UNT Libraries and hosted on The Portal to Texas History.

Both newspapers and archival collections will be considered for digitization. Deadline for receipt of applications is July 31.

Since 2006, the UNT Libraries have awarded over 140 mini-grants, enabling organizations and individuals to provide online access to their historic collections through The Portal to Texas History.

Over the last few years, The Portal to Texas History has partnered with the Digital Public Library of America, which brings together digital collections from across the United States.

This collaboration between the DPLA and the Portal to Texas History has brought with it an even larger user base to discover Portal Partners’ items.

Through seven years of projects funded with Rescuing Texas History, the combined results enabled free public access to 37,901 historic items, comprising 106,142 individual files, which have to date received over 4.1 million uses.
