Planning for The Greatest Digitization Project on Earth

The Barnum Museum received a competitive award from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Preservation and Access Division – a Humanities Collections and Reference Resources (HCRR) grant!  The Barnum Museum will partner with the Bridgeport Public library to undertake planning for a future digitization initiative.

This grant supports the essential underpinnings for scholarship, education and public programming in the humanities. The Barnum Museum will partner with the Bridgeport Public library to undertake planning for a future digitization initiative. Playing upon P. T. Barnum’s famous phrase, the project is titled “Planning for “The Greatest Digitization Project on Earth” with the P. T. Barnum Collections of The Barnum Museum and Bridgeport Public Library”!
