Report of a Preservation Needs Assessment (Report)
Title: Report of a Preservation Needs Assessment
Author: Danielle Spalenka, Preservation Specialist for the Northeast Document Conservation Center
Abstract: Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) provided a detailed preservation needs assessment for the Knoxville Jewish Archives, based on a site visit, outlining strengths and weaknesses in areas of a) collection management and preservation planning, b) building and environment, c) collections storage and handling, and d) conservation, reformatting, and exhibition of the Archives’ holdings. The report provided information on best practices in these areas, and recommended actions to be taken to preserve this cultural heritage, broken into short-, medium- and long-term priorities. Appendices included an implementation matrix, resources for additional information and contact information for vendors, and a sample five-year preservation plan.
