Description

Over the last year+, we have, through some grant funding, created a list of private, public, personal, etc. archival collections in our surrounding counties. While some lists might show 3-5 institutions of interest for archives in those counties, our lists have 30-40+ locations. Internally, we’re using those lists to start conversations on archival best-practices, collection preservations, collection longevity in its current environment, or donation, etc. It’s been eye-opening for us. We’d love to share how this came about, what we’re doing specifically, what we’re looking at moving forward, etc.
