While not every aspect of digitization is free, participating in CVL Collections and becoming a PPC partner is! For organizations with larger collections, we also offer the following cost sharing options for additional storage.

CVL Collections Storage Costs

Our cost sharing schedule has four tiers of digital storage for content housed in your hosted (Omeka) CMS.

  • Free: up to 2 GB storage  
  • $25/yr up to 5 GB storage
  • $35/yr up to 10 GB storage
  • $60/yr up to 25 GB storage  

Because CVL Collections is intended to help smaller libraries and cultural heritage organizations get their digital collections online, storage options over 25GB are supported outside of the cost sharing schedule that has been established for participation. If you have a larger collection, reach out to Amy Hitchner at for more information on storage tiers and pricing.
