First Event of the Michigan Collections Network

While I don't really like to create blog posts that are little more than a link to some other blog's post, that is pretty much what this is. This past week the Michigan Collections Network held their first event - and quite a success at that. It was an afternoon dedicated to grant funding for preservation and digitization. Some of the things that pleased me about the event was that we could offer it at no cost, the event brought in people from libraries, archives, and museums, and the attendees could hear stories from their colleagues about the steps they went through to write and carryout various kinds of grant funded projects. Without really saying much more than that, you can read more about it on the Michigan Collections Network blog where you can also see pictures of the event, and slides of some of the presenters.
