A preservation assessment of books, archives, photographs, maps, newspapers, and audio and videotapes related to the history of Lincoln, Massachusetts, from 1754 to the late 20th century.

The Lincoln Public Library will hire a preservation consultant to perform a general preservation survey of the paper-based local history materials stored in the library's historical archive. The archive contains both published and unpublished materials relating to all aspects of the history of Lincoln and serves as the town's archive. Lincoln was settled long before the American Revolution and was originally part of Concord. The preservation consultant's report will assess possible risks to the collection, evaluate institutional policies and procedures, and identify preservation priorities. This report will be used as a planning document for the Lincoln Public Library's preservation activities to save these materials for future generations.
