23 Funding for Archives Got an idea for a project; what next?

24 HLF does not have any specific archive criteria however, here are some areas for you to consider: Archives, digitisation and cataloguing can all be funded. We won’t fund projects to catalogue or digitise an entire collection. We cannot fund the conservation or cataloguing of private collections unless enhanced public access outweighs private gain. How will the original source material be conserved after the project? Can you demonstrate that the original material is at risk of degradation or loss? Is your archive PD5454 compatible? If not, can you demonstrate that the environmental conditions are suitable for the long term care of your collection? Training and volunteers are important; we can support skills development (e.g. object handling, digitisation, conservation, exhibition design, cataloguing )

25 How will you select items for digitisation and what kind of digitised material will most help you to meet the aims of your project? Have you considered themes, subject and formats that will suit or target your project audience? How will your archive material be accessible in the long term and how will you preserve it? Your staffing for the project – is it compatible with HLF guidance, and does it represent value for money? Lots of guidance is available on our website at: Thinking_about_Archives_people_and_communities.pdf Think about…

26 We can help you to buy heritage items however, purchase alone is not enough – all projects must meet our criteria We will not support purchase that is above market value; independent valuation is required Urgent acquisitions are possible within a single HG round, but you need to demonstrate how the item will be integrated into existing learning programmes Acquisition of heritage items Murdoch Foot letter run Kingston University, £107,300

27 Get advice – speak to the Development Team Be clear – don’t use jargon Check your application, especially the finance section Read the guidance carefully, use help notes and application checklist Think carefully about your 200 word project summary Don’t start your project before we have assessed it Crayford Town Archives, £39,500 William White Autograph Book Some tips…
