Holy Cow! I’m walking on air! Life is beautiful!
I applied for an NEH Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions this past May, and recieved word today that we got it!!! Glorious! The money we are receiving will be used to have a much-needed preservation survey done by the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) – hands down one of the top preservation organizations in the country. With a top-notch preservation survey and the recomendations made in it we will be ready to make a long-term plan for preservation of our materials…and to get further assistance for projects involving those collections. A preservation survey is a powerful tool, and we would not be able to have one of this magnitude without the help of the NEH!
