Report of a Preservation Needs Assessment (Report)
Title: Report of a Preservation Needs Assessment
Author: Boyne, Eli
Abstract: On December 3, 2021, paper-based, photographic, and audiovisual materials housed in the Legacy Center at the Japanese American Service Committee (JASC) were assessed for preservation planning purposes by Eli Boyne, Preservation Specialist for the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) in Andover, MA. The assessment evaluated the buildings and environments as they relate to the preservation needs of the materials; examined current policies, storage, and handling procedures; and assessed the general condition of materials. Observations and recommendations are based on a pre-site visit questionnaire and a full-day site visit that included discussions with Emma Saito Lincoln, Legacy Center Director; Ken Oba, Volunteer; Michael Takada, Executive Director/CEO; and Bryan Robson, Controller.
