Queens Library partnered with Historypin on a super cool new project that helps residents of the nation's most diverse borough share their memories. We are very excited to have provided funding for this!

The Empire State Digital Network is one of three new service hubs working to bring metadata and content to the Digital Public Library of America. We are happy to report that New York State's new DPLA hub will be administered by METRO.

We are now accepting applications for our Innovative Internship program this Fall! Funding is available for graduate students, recent grads, and professionals in transition, regardless of their affiliation with METRO. We only ask that the internships take place at one of our member institutions (check our member directory at metro.org).

Just a reminder that only 30 days remain until applications for our 2013 cycle of digitization grants are due!

We've got three different options for funding. Whatever your digitization needs may be, we've got you covered.
