A regional preservation field service program that provides preservation surveys, workshops, and educational materials to libraries, archives, museums, and historical organizations in the Southeast.

SOLINET proposes to provide preservation education and training, information services, publications, and consultations to libraries and archives in the Southeast. Services will educate and inform librarians and archivists about preservation issues and assist them in taking steps to preserve and ensure access to information resources for current and future users. Specific project goals include teaching at least 96 workshops, expanding distance education programs, making 20 presentations, providing 12 consultations and 10 site visits, offering information services including print and electronic publications, and developing a model outcomes-based evaluation program for regional preservation field services.
