The North Carolina Preservation Consortium (NCPC) is a 501C3
nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of educational,
historical, and cultural collections in our state's archives,
libraries, museums, historic sites, document depositories, and
record centers.  Our preservation mission addresses the proper care
and handling of materials; storage and environmental control;
disaster preparedness and recovery; the repair, reformatting and
conservation of damaged items; and collection security.  NCPC
supports the preservation of information content, and the medium as
artifact, in new and traditional formats for present and future
generations.

Membership: We would like to welcome your institution to the
preservation consortium.  Our minimum annual membership fee is only
$100.00. Higher levels of support are voluntary.  Benefits of NCPC
membership include discounts on our continuing education workshops
and annual conference.  Employees of institutional members are
eligible to hold leadership positions as officers and on the
consortium's board of directors, committees, and task groups. Member
institutions are also recognized for their contributions on our web
site.  The success of our state wide preservation program depends on
the talents, diversity, and generosity of our colleagues.  Together
we can make a difference in the survival of our heritage
collections. A membership application is available at
