Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions: Preservation Assistance Grants help small and mid-size institutions--libraries, museums, and historical societies, archival repositories, town and county records offices, and underserved departments and units within colleges and universities and other larger institutions--improve their ability to preserve and care for their humanities collections. These collections may include special collections of books and journals, archives and manuscripts, prints and photographs, moving images, sound recordings, architectural and cartographic records, decorative and fine arts, textiles, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, furniture, and historical objects. Applicants must draw on the knowledge of consultants whose preservation skills and experiences are related to the types of collections and the nature of the activities that are the focus of their projects. Within the conservation field, for example, conservators usually specialize in the care of specific types of collections, such as objects, paper, or paintings. Applicants should therefore choose a conservator whose specialty is appropriate for the nature of their collections. Similarly, when assessing the preservation needs of archival holdings, applicants should seek a consultant specifically knowledgeable about archives and preservation. Because the organization and the preservation of archival collections must be approached in tandem, an archival consultant can also provide advice about the management needs of such holdings as part of a preservation assessment.
