A preservation assessment of a collection of more than 1,400 books and journals, as well as maps, newspapers, photographs, and historical objects related to the history of German immigration in Texas, along with preservation training for the staff of the historical society.

The GTHS is asking the NEH to support a site survey/preservation management consultation by Amigos Library Services, Austin, Texas. The preservation site survey will address building evaluation and disaster planning needs; review the overall collections; evaluate procedures and policies that apply to preservation; and provide recommendations for improving storage and handling practices. The survey will result in a report that identifies short- and long-term priorities for preservation and will address training of GTHS personnel in preservation of collections of books and other materials.
