Writing Grants for Preservation and Conservation Projects
Minneapolis, MN
September 17, 2012

    You'll learn grant writing to fund practical
    conservation-related projects such as: supplies and materials
    for re-housing of collections; storage upgrades; monitoring
    equipment; general preservation needs assessment surveys; and
    preservation related staff training. You'll learn how to:
    conduct an internal review; develop a proposal; budget; and find
    matching funds. Descriptions and information will be presented
    on available federal and state grants, with tips on private
    foundation applications. Each participant will receive a
    notebook of grant-writing materials and can follow-up with MACC
    staff as they develop applications.

Making Sense of Media Collections
Science Museum of Minnesota
Minneapolis, MN
October 19, 2012

    Many archivists are daunted by film and video collections. They
    recognize the value of archival moving images, and understand
    that active preservation steps are necessary to maintaining such
    collections. But the level of technical expertise needed to make
    decisions about film and video preservation can seem
    intimidating. This daylong workshop aims to demystify the media
    collection, giving archivists a nuts-and-bolt, and practical
    overview of the issues facing moving image collections. Topics
    covered will include: film and video production practices and
    how they are reflected in archival materials; deterioration
    mechanisms for film and magnetic media, storage conditions, and
    handling practices; assessing a moving image collection;
    cataloging strategies; and the basics of video digitization.
    This workshop is presented by Jeff Martin, a 2005 graduate of
    New York University's Moving Image Archiving and Preservation MA
    program and recipient of a fellowship from the Smithsonian

    Free for MACC members and non-members (limited to 40
    participants). Sponsored by the Institute for Museum and Library
