NEH Award Winner

logo from the National Endowment for the Humanties"Otterbein University’s Courtright Memorial Library, home to the university archives, encompassing over 170 years’ worth of university and United Brethren Church history, recently received a $5,999 Preservation Assistance Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).  
According to the NEH’s website, Preservation Assistance Grants help institutions improve their ability to preserve and care for their significant humanities collections, including special collections of books, journals, diaries, and manuscripts, amongst other items.

“Being awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities is a huge accomplishment for us, considering how competitive the application process is,” said Stephen Grinch, the University Archivist of the past 20 years. 'The archive needs its own review to analyze its strengths and weaknesses and figure out the direction we need to take the Archive in over the next three-to-five-years.'"
