Regional Preservation Field Service Program

A regional preservation field service program that provides surveys, workshops and seminars, disaster assistance, and information services to museums, historical organizations, libraries, and archives in the Upper Midwest.

The Midwest Art Conservation Center (MACC) requests continued funding to expand and improve its Regional Preservation Field Service program. The primary goal of the Preservation Services program is to develop and support the preservation programs of small and mid-size cultural repositories in the Upper Midwest. To achieve this goal the program provides: training; mentoring; preservation planning surveys; grant writing assistance; emergency response services and supplies; and technical information. During the proposed NEH grant period (2008-2009), MACC's Preservation Services program plans to expand its role by: increasing training opportunities; conducting mentoring and preservation planning surveys; increasing the provision of technical information; expanding grant writing assistance to small organizations; and working with other regional and national preservation organizations and museum, library and archival associations to increase and coordinate preservation education and services
