CREATING AND FUNDING PRESERVATION PROJECTS WORKSHOP, AUG. 1
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. The Oregon
State Historical Society will host “Creating and Funding Preservation
Projects to Enhance Collection Care”, a one-day workshop from 9 a.m. – 4
p.m., Aug. 1 at 1200 SW Park Ave., Portland. Register online at WESTPAS
Workshop ( http://tiny.cc/ZePOL ).
"Creating and Funding Preservation Projects to Enhance Collection Care"
is a one-day workshop that begins with identifying and setting
priorities among collection needs. With a clear sense of needs, the
second part of the workshop reviews sources of grant funding available
to your institution. The third part of the workshop addresses the key
preservation questions asked on grant applications - participants answer
the questions on behalf of their institutions, building the elements of
a proposal for their own collection. The workshop emphasizes working
collaboratively with colleagues to develop and receive feedback on
Administrators and staff responsible for care of the collection in all
types of libraries, museums and archives, and those without grant
writing experience specific to preservation will benefit from this
workshop. By the end of the workshop day, participants will have
outlined a preservation project proposal specific to their institution;
identified possible funding sources; and tested their ideas with other
workshop participants. When possible, two attendees from an institution
should attend so they can work together on project development. By
registering for the workshop, the institution commits to supporting the
attendee(s) to achieve the workshop's goals to develop and submit
proposals for preservation projects to enhance collection care.
