Regional Preservation Field Service Program

A regional preservation field service program that strengthens preservation practices and the care of humanities collections at hundreds of museums, historical organizations, libraries, and archives in five states of the Upper Midwest. Activities include training workshops, disaster response services, preservation needs assessments and surveys, the loan of environmental monitoring equipment, and information and outreach services. In all, the project would support more than twenty workshops reaching nearly 400 cultural heritage professionals in the Midwest.

The Midwest Art Conservation Center (MACC) requests continued funding for its Regional Preservation Field Service Program. This program strengthens the preservation practices and collections care at cultural repositories in the Upper Midwest, resulting in increased public access to the treasures in this region. During the proposed NEH grant period (2016–2017), MACC's Preservation Services program will improve preservation practices at hundreds of institutions by providing: collections care and preservation related workshops; disaster response services and preparation training; preservation planning surveys; collections care information; grant preparation assistance; and other related collection improvement services. The program has demonstrated very successful outcomes and measurable results, keeps its programming accessible to even the smallest institutions in the region, is staffed by knowledgeable conservators and preservation experts, and is devoted to this region's collections.
