Preserving Film Collections for the Future - An Essential Web Application

To support: The creation and testing of a freely available web-based application, FilmCare.org, that would provide an authoritative source of information and an easy-to-implement decision-making tool for preserving all types and formats of film materials.

The Image Permanence Institute is seeking funding for a major education and training project dealing with best practices for preserving film materials in museums, archives, libraries, and other repositories.

Through an interactive process, this free tool will guide users to identify the nature of film materials, to design and conduct condition surveys, to evaluate existing collection environments, to analyze findings, to simulate certain improvements and their impact on the collections, to choose between alternatives approaches, to implement the appropriate preservation plan, and to monitor the state of preservation over time.

Amigos Library Services Southwest Imaging & Preservation Field Service

To support: A regional field service program that provides workshops, consultations, preservation surveys, disaster response assistance, reference services, and educational materials on preservation and digitization to libraries, archives, and cultural heritage organizations in the Southwest.

In the current economic environment, the work done by the Amigos Imaging and Preservation Service is more important than ever. Cuts in funding cultural heritage organizations have many scrambling on how to care for their collections. Amigos IPS strives to work with organizations who must find solutions to their preservation and imaging issues while working with diminished funding. Since 1991, Amigos IPS has been serving the Southwest and other areas of the Western United States not assisted by a preservation and imaging field service. IPS plays a critical leadership role throughout the region by helping cultural institutions to preserve and make accessible their unique collections. With the continued support from the NEH, Amigos will be able to carry on its highly-regarded services to ensure continued access to the to the rich cultural legacy of the Southwest.

Western Region Field Service Program (WRFSP)

To support: A regional preservation field service program that provides preservation surveys, workshops, technical consultations, and educational materials to museums and historical organizations in California, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington.

Funding is requested for the WRFSP, which serves over 2,700 museums and historical organizations in the Western region (CA, AZ, OR, and WA)with collections of humanities value. Established in 2001 with NEH funding as the first and only field service program in the region designed to serve material culture holdings, the WRFSP was awarded four consecutive NEH grants and in 2012 supplemental funding. Since inception, WRFSP has exceeded stated objectives. Funding for 2013-15 will enable BACC to continue to expand services to meet needs while due to increased cost efficiencies, repositioning to grow project income, and diversification of contributed support, BACC will markedly reduce reliance on NEH funding. Principal program objectives for improving preservation of humanities resources are: workshops on preservation practices with a strategic balance of face-to-face and web-based formats; subsidized surveys with 3, new time and cost efficient types; consultations and technical assistance.
