 Activity:  To help public libraries conduct a preservation/
                 conservation survey of the collection(s) to
                 determine individual item conservation
                 requirements, the needs for proper storage,
                 care and handling.
                 To help public libraries determine priorities

 Activity:  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 a
                 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.

 Activity:  A grant from the National Endowment for the
                 Humanities (NEH) makes it possible for NEDCC
                 to provide subsidized preservation planning
                 surveys for collections of photographs, books
                 and paper.  Libraries, archives, museums,
                 records repositories, and historical
                 organizations in NEDCC's region are invited to
                 apply. The cost of a subsidized survey is $250
                 plus travel costs.

                 Since 1981 NEDCC has provided several hundred
                 preservation planning surveys through its Field
                 Service Office.  A survey includes a one-day
                 site visit by a member of the NEDCC field service
                 team and a report of observations and
                 recommendations.  The surveyor evaluates
                 building conditions, collections, and storage
                 and handling procedures in order to identify
                 potential hazards to collections and to design
                 strategies for preserving paper-based and
                 documentary materials in the best condition
                 possible.  Specific goals and priorities are
                 suggested and steps needed to implement
                 preservation measures are outlined.

                 A survey provides the basis for a long-range
                 plan.  For many institutions, surveys have
                 provided valuable support for funding
                 requisitions for preservation projects.
                 Subsidized surveys are awarded competitively,
                 and a limited number are available.  Preference
                 is given to collections of unique or
                 irreplaceable value and to institutions who
                 can demonstrate financial need.  Selections are
                 made periodically; applications that are not
                 accepted are automatically reconsidered in
                 subsequent rounds.

                 In addition to the general preservation planning
                 survey, NEDCC's conservators are available to
                 examine the conservation needs of specific
                 collections or objects.  Site visits by a
                 conservator are provided at the Center's
                 regular consulting rates; scheduling and costs
                 can be discussed by telephone.  For materials
                 brought or sent to the Center for examination,
                 treatment proposals and cost estimates are
                 provided without charge.

 Contact:   Requests for application forms should be sent
                 to Karen Brown, Field Service Representative,
                 NEDCC, 100 Brickstone Square, Andover,
