Support for preservation overview surveys

From: Helen Corr <ccaha>
Date: Wednesday, January 7, 1998
Do you want to apply for preservation project funding, but need
professional assistance in establishing collection priorities? The
Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) is able
to offer the advice needed for preservation planning in your
institution.

CCAHA's Preservation Overview Survey Program has been extended until
Spring 2000 through continued funding from the National Endowment
for the Humanities (NEH).  For a greatly reduced rate, you can
receive a full day's review of the preservation efforts of your
institution.  The cost for this overview survey is $300 ($350 after
July 1, 1998) and travel expenses for the surveyor.  After the
visit, you will receive an extensive report that will assist you in
setting your preservation priorities.

If your institution has a paper-based humanities collection
available to the public, you are eligible to be considered for
participation in CCAHA's subsidized Survey Program.

The survey process encompasses a general evaluation of your
institution's preservation needs for its collection: environment
(temperature, relative humidity, pollution and light), housekeeping,
pest control, fire protection, security, and disaster preparedness;
collection storage, handling, exhibition, and treatment; and
preservation planning.  The site visit consists of a review of the
site, an examination of the collection, and interviews with relevant
staff to identify your preservation needs.

The written report provides observations, recommendations, and
resources to serve as a guide in developing a comprehensive
preservation plan for your institution's paper-based collection.
