The New York State Program for the Conservation and Preservation of Library Research Materials. Discretionary Grant Application Workbook.
New York State Library, Albany. Div. of Library Development.
This workbook is intended to aid in the preparation of the New York State Conservation/Preservation Discretionary Grant Program application and should be used in conjunction with the current Discretionary Grant Guidelines. The workbook contains hints on grant writing, a completed sample cover sheet and other application forms, good and "not-so-good" examples of the narratives for each of the six sections of the Project Description (description of institution or agency, institutional commitment to conservation/preservation, accessibility of collections to the public, research value of materials to be preserved, plan of work, and institutional contribution to the project) and a sample Project Budget. Comments which point out exactly what is missing in each "not-so-good" example are also provided and these examples comprise the main portion of the workbook. Each group of examples is preceded by a brief checklist of the information to be included in that section of the Project Description. This checklist is abstracted from the "Application Instructions," which contain much more detailed information. The "Instructions" also contain explanations of the information requested on the budget forms. The workbook should help the applicant to understand some of the common pitfalls encountered in presenting a proposal, and provide the information needed to avoid them. (MAB)
