It is a project of the Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries which is comprised of seven citizens and is empowered by the Legislature to develop and maintain a listing of all pioneer and historic cemeteries in Oregon; make recommendations for funding, obtain grants funding, seek legislative appropriations for historic cemeteries, and assist in the coordination of restoration, renovation and maintenance of historic cemeteries statewide.

The Commission is part of Oregon Heritage, a division of Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

Coming Fall 2017, the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will offer a new digital review and compliance submittal service called Go Digital. Go Digital will streamline the submittal process and allow our office to assist a greater number of customers while maintaining response times. In response to requests from our customers, our Go Digital service will allow for an easier, quicker way to submit, receive, track, and consult on new and existing projects.

Go Digital Basics:

* Go Digital submittals are heavily encouraged; however, hard-copy or paper submittals will still be accepted via standard mail.
* If a project is submitted via hard-copy or paper, all future correspondence associated with the project must be submitted in the same format, including all updates and revisions.
* Similarly, if a project is submitted via Go Digital, no hard-copy materials associated with the project will be accepted later in the consultation process.
* Archaeological reports and site forms submitted via Go Digital will no longer require a hard-copy or CD.
* Go Digital submittals will not be accepted unless they are sent to the ORSHPO.Clearance at oregon.gov<mailto:ORSHPO.Clearance at oregon.gov> email following the Go Digital Submittal Guidelines.
* Go Digital Submittal Guidelines will be available prior to roll out.

For questions regarding Go Digital, contact Matt Diederich at (503) 986-0577 or matt.diederich at oregon.gov<mailto:matt.diederich at oregon.gov>.

How many smaller institutions have scrapbooks and old books that have been entrusted to their care and that are just shoved in the back of a dark closet because they are problem objects? Books and scrapbooks are similar objects in many ways, but each requires different types of care. In this webinar we will explore these differences and techniques to extend the lives of these deceptively simple objects. We will look at the types of albums and books, handling these objects, housings, shelving, and more. Armed with a sound foundation, you will be able to create a preservation plan for two very common categories of materials.
