ibiblio’s Folkstreams wins IMLS Leadership Grant

Expanding on the work of a previous IMLS grant, UNC’s ibiblio.org digital library will archive, digitize, and video stream 35 new documentary films. Partnering with Folkstreams, Inc. and the University’s Southern Folklore Collection, the project will produce a guide to best practices in video digitization; add 20 new video clips to its Video Aids for Film Preservation; and create portals, guides, and outreach materials for senior citizens and teachers. Rare documentaries will provide knowledge of American folklife to these two distinct audiences using the easy-to-access folkstreams.net Website.
