Successful projects should contribute to the following NCR-SARE broad-based outcomes: a) improving the profitability of farmers and associated agricultural businesses, b) sustaining and improving the environmental quality and natural resources base on which agriculture depends, c) enhancing the quality of life for farmers/ranchers, rural communities, and society as a whole.
Preservation and Access Research and Development grants support projects that address major challenges in preserving or providing access to humanities collections and resources. These challenges include the need to find better ways to preserve materials of critical importance to the nation's cultural heritage--from fragile artifacts and manuscripts to analog recordings and digital assets subject to technological obsolescence--and to develop advanced modes of searching, discovering, and using such materials. Applicants should define a specific problem, devise procedures and potential solutions, and explain how they would evaluate their projects and disseminate their findings. Project results must serve the needs of a significant segment of humanists. 20110519-PR (GG 2/22/11)
