Join Us for National Preservation Week, April 22 - 28, 2012

The American Library Association, the Society of American Archivists, the Library of Congress, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and many other cultural heritage organizations  have partnered to launch Preservation Week - a national campaign to help raise awareness about collecting and preservation, to connect the general public to preservation information and expertise, and to emphasize the close relationships among personal, family, community, and public collections and their preservation.

Currently, 630 million items in collecting institutions require immediate attention and care. Eighty percent of these institutions have no paid staff assigned responsibility for collections care; 22 percent have no collections care personnel at all. Some 2.6 billion items are not protected by an emergency plan. As natural disasters of recent years have taught us, these resources are in jeopardy should a disaster strike. Personal, family, and community collections are equally at risk.
