LAMP Proposal Guidelines

Proposals should be submitted using the Proposal Template.  The proposals will then be made available in the globalCollections platform.

If you would like to propose a digitization project, please write a proposal covering the questions in the LAMP Digitization Project Principles


LAMP funding can support direct costs for projects (including digitization costs, personnel salary and benefits, and other reasonable direct costs). However, LAMP’s policies do not allow for the inclusion of indirect/overhead costs. CRL and its constituent programs provide support for projects on a cost-reimbursable basis, and should not be construed as “grants.”

You may open the form, add information about your proposed project in the appropriate fields, and then e-mail the completed proposal to Judy Alspach.  If you have any questions about the form or about project proposal ideas, please contact Judy Alspach.
