Town of Concord Archives - Preservation Needs Assessment with NEDCC

A preservation assessment for bound and unbound official records of the Town of Concord government from the mid-seventeenth century to the present. The resulting plan would help the town to preserve a collection currently housed in multiple locations. The materials are used by professional and amateur historians alike, and with the recent hiring of a Curator of Special Collections, Concord would share and disseminate the collection more broadly.

The Town of Concord will engage consultants from the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) to review the holdings of the Town of Concord Archives located at the Town House and the Concord Free Public Library. NEDCC will complete a General Preservation Assessment Report which will guide future preservation planning activities and budgeting. In addition, the Town of Concord Archives is seeking funding for supplies to re-house collections.
