mailto:heritage.info at state.or.us ). Include the name of the sponsoring
organization, and a website, phone number or email address where people

PRESERVATION ACTIVITIES SUBJECT OF SURVEY
Cultural heritage institutions with preservation activities have the
opportunity to complete "A Survey of Preservation Activities in Cultural
Heritage Institutions - FY2012", a pilot study coordinated by the
Preservation and Reformatting Section of the American Library
Association and the Association of Library Collections and Technical
Services. Visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/preservation-survey to
take the survey, which will be open through June 25.
The goal of this survey is to document the state of preservation
activities in this digital era via quantitative data that facilitates
information sharing and tracking changes in the preservation and
conservation fields over time. Questions focus on preservation
activities for fiscal year 2012 (as defined by your institution) and
will document your institution's administration and staffing of
preservation activities, budget and expenditures, general preservation
programming (disaster planning, education, outreach and more),
conservation treatment, preservation reformatting and digitization, and
digital preservation activities.
ALBANY SEEKING CONSULTANT SERVICES FOR NATIONAL REGISTER NOMINATION
The City of Albany, a Certified Local Government, is seeking proposals
from interested consultants for the purpose of conducting a minimum of
four intensive level surveys in one of Albany’s Post World War II
neighborhoods, Lehigh Acres and a draft narrative of Section 8 of the
National Register Nomination Form for a potential National Register
historic district designation. Reconnaissance level surveys on the
neighborhood of 117 residential properties took place in 2011.
The Intensive Level Surveys and further historical analysis and
documentation will assist the City of Albany Landmarks Advisory
Commission and the residents in Lehigh Acres to gain understanding about
the integrity of the neighborhood and the potential for listing the
neighborhood in National Register of Historic Places. The budget for
this project is $3,000. Email Anne Catlin (
mailto:anne.catlin at cityofalbany.net ) or call (541) 917-7560 to receive
a copy of the Request for Consultant Services. Consultant proposals are
due May 24 by 5 p.m.
