Malcolm Taylor Grant for Folk Collections

The Malcolm Taylor Grant for Folk Collections is a fund dedicated to supporting the development, creation and preservation of folk related materials held by individuals or small organisations.

Malcolm Taylor was Librarian and later Director of the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library (VWML) from 1979 to 2014. To celebrate his 35 years of service and his commitment to folk collections, the fund was created in his name.

The scheme is intended to promote good practice in the creation and development of collections.

EFDSS is offering two grants of up to £500 for the development, creation and preservation of folk related materials. Grants can be used for a variety of purposes, including (but not limited to) the purchase of archival quality packaging, remedial conservation work, courses and advice, and the creation and presentation of collections.
