    Congratulations! Year 5 Arcadia
Funding is Awarded.

Five proposals have won awards for the final year of funding from the 5 year grant given by Arcadia–a UK based grant-making fund established in 2001, whose key mission is to protect endangered culture and nature. The awards total just over $623,000. Beginning in September 2013 with a completion date of August 2014, the proposed projects cover a wide range of library units and involve cataloging, conservation, and geocoding.

One interesting outcome is The Awesome Box.
