Free Workshops on Creating & Funding Preservation Projects – San Luis Obispo and Tulare, March 2013

“Creating and Funding Preservation Projects to Enhance Collection Care” is a one-day workshop that begins with identifying and setting priorities among collection needs. With a clear sense of needs, the second part of the workshop reviews sources of grant funding available to your institution. The third part of the workshop addresses the key preservation questions asked on grant applications – participants answer the questions on behalf of their institutions, building the elements of a proposal for their own collection. The workshop emphasizes working collaboratively with colleagues to develop and receive feedback on project proposals.

By the end of the workshop day, participants will have:

  • Outlined a preservation project proposal specific to their institution
  • Identified possible funding sources
  • Tested their ideas with other workshop participants
