New! Creating and Funding Preservation Projects to Enhance Collection Care
Do you want to get a preservation grant to take care of your collections? Many institutions have used grant-funded projects to enhance the level of care they can provide for their collections, and sometimes even to jump start their preservation programs. By the end of the one-day workshop, participants will have outlined a preservation project proposal specific to their institution, identified possible funding sources, and tested their ideas with other workshop participants. Training locations include Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Sacramento.
