Regional Preservation Field Service Program

Funding supports the continuation and expansion of a regional preservation field service program with activities focused on training, mentoring, disaster assistance, and information and outreach services for 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 this program is to strengthen preservation practices and collections care at cultural repositories in the Midwest, resulting in increased public access to the treasures in this region. During the proposed NEH grant period (2010-2011), MACC's Preservation Services program will improve preservation practices by: increasing training opportunities; conducting mentoring and preservation surveys; increasing the provision of technical information and services; expanding grant writing assistance to small organizations; working with other regional and national preservation, museum, library and archival organizations to increase and coordinate preservation education and services; and measuring direct outcomes at regional institutions.
