 Agency:    Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA)
 Address:    264 South 23rd Street, Philadelphia, PA  19103
 Telephone:    215-545-0613

 WWW Site:     http://www.ccaha.org
 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 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.

 Contact:    To request an application form or to receive additional
 information about CCAHA and the services we provide, please
 contact:  Susan W. DuBois, Preservation Services Representative.

 Agency:    Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC)
 Address:    100 Brickstone Square, Andover, MA 01810-1494
 Telephone:    978-470-1010
 Fax:        978-475-6021
 Email:        kebrown [at] nedcc__org
 WWW site:    http://www.nedcc.org
 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 a
 re 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, Massachusetts 01810; 978-470-1010 or
 kebrown [at] nedcc__org.
