This grant will be used to fund Phase VI of the contin- ued scanning and digitization of glass plate negatives from the Gust Akeflund Photography Studio col- lection. For this phase, 2,000 of the 5x7 plates will be scanned, with digital copies produced for archiving. Upon completion of this phase, nearly 85 percent of the more than 11,380 plates in the collection will have been scanned and digitized.
