Funding for Impact and Embedding of Digitised Resources

JISC has just announced funding for its Grant call 7/10: e-Content and Digitisation programme: Impact and Embedding of digitised resources.

Funding of up to £150,000 is available for projects addressing the impact and embedding of digitised resources.  It is anticipated that 4-6 projects will be funded and the maximum funding for any one project is £40,000.

Proposals are not limited to previously funded JISC projects.

The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is 12 noon on Friday 9 July 2010.

The call aims to:

  • Facilitate institutions in carrying out an analysis of the impact of their digitised resources/collections that have been live for at least one calendar year.
  • To develop strategies and practical solutions to ensure the increased use and impact of the resources in teaching, learning and research within higher education (HE)

This call is in response to a number of important studies and pieces of work attempting to asses the impact and usage of digital resources, including the impact study carried out on the phase I JISC digitisation projects.

Projects must start in October 2010 and complete by March 2011.
