General Preservation Assessment

A general preservation assessment of archives, photographs, newspapers, and books related to Rhode Island state history.

The South Kingstown Public Library will contract with the Northeast Document Conservation Center to conduct a General Preservation Planning Survey. The purpose of the survey is to identify hazards to collections overall and to help preserve materials using preventive maintenance strategies. Building conditions, storage and handling procedures, disaster preparedness and policies that impact preservation will be examined. The consultant will prepare a formal report which will be used as a first step in the Library's long-term preservation initiative.
