NMCT grants

The National Manuscripts Conservation Trust (NMCT) invites
applications for funding for preservation and conservation projects
involving manuscript material. If your institution is a record
office, library or another publicly funded body like a local
authority, university or specialist record repository you may be
eligible for support by the Trust. We offer funding to cover the
cost of the repair, binding and other preservation measures
including reprography, of manuscript material.

The Trust will award up to 50% of a project's cost, and the
applicant needs to provide matching funding. This can be in the form
of an eligible in-kind contribution as well as cash. Grants range
from UKP1,000 to UKP30,000 and the Trust is keen to emphasise that
applicants can use NMCT grants as part of their matching funding for
bids to other funding bodies like the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Grants awarded in 2001 included UKP20,936 to Berkeley Castle to
complete the conservation and microfilming of the Berkeley Castle
muniments, UKP2,500 to the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company to conserve
their archives, UKP11,000 to Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent
Archive Service towards the project to conserve the Staffordshire
Tithe maps, and UKP12,500 to the University of Nottingham Library
towards the conservation of the Wollaton Antiphonal.

Closing dates for applications are April 1 and October 1, 2002. For
