A general preservation assessment of the library and museum collections and a workshop on preservation management and collections care for the staff of the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society.

The ACHS is seeking assistance to secure a NEDCC Preservation Specialist to perform a general preservation assessment of our library and museum collections and to provide a workshop on preservation management and collection care. ACHS is based in a historic building with limited space for storage and inadequate climate control. We hold an extensive collection of artifacts of local and historical importance which have suffered from neglect due to improper storage and handling of materials, and from an extensive plumbing leak in 2020 that severely damaged manuscripts awaiting processing and necessitated the rapid relocation of materials without benefit of proper organization. Obtaining a detailed preservation assessment report and holding a preservation management and collections care workshop for staff and volunteers will enable us to increase our understanding and utilization of best practices for preservation, maintenance, and long-term protection of our collections.
