Homework Help – Preservation

Well, the term is winding down and I have a grant proposal to write for one of my classes! I’m choosing a real situation from our library to write a fake grant proposal for – that way when I’m done I can give my research to the people here and they can alter it to fit the application requirements for a real grant.

My grant is going to be for a digitization/archival project that will results in tons of PDFs. I have already talked to my IT department about storage and backup costs – now I want to hear from you. Have you done a project like this? What expenses did you incur that you didn’t think of? Do you happen to know the cost of a preservation consultant (something I might want to add into my fake budget)? Etc. Etc.

Thanks in advance!!!
