PW-269319-20Preservation and Access: Humanities Collections and Reference ResourcesSociety of Architectural Historians (NFP)Foundations Project: A Collaboration Between SAH and the UC Riverside and UC Santa Barbara to Preserve At-Risk 35mm Slide Collections6/1/2020 - 6/30/2022$59,982.00PaulineA.Saliga   Society of Architectural Historians (NFP)ChicagoIL60610-2144USA2020ArchitectureHumanities Collections and Reference ResourcesPreservation and Access599820563810

A survey of at-risk 35mm slide collections of the built environment in the United States and abroad created from the 1960s to the mid-1990s held by members and partner institutions of the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH), along with a pilot project to create a consortium of institutions that would house the digitized and physical collections; develop guidelines for prioritizing digitization, long-term storage and disposal; and create a framework for using fellowships and internships to assist with digitizing the slides and creating finding aids.

This project's first goal is the identification of at-risk 35mm slide collections focused on the built environment. Previous investigation through the SAH has recognized the levels of risk and identified measures to preserve material of high significance.  The second goal is ensuring the documentation, processing, and ultimate widespread sharing of these assets in recognition of their positive impact on the Humanities.
