Dyani Feige (Project Director: May 2018 to present)
CCAHA Preservation Field Services: Making Collections Care Accessible

A preservation field service program that would offer training, colloquia, and webinars for 650 cultural heritage professionals; conduct 25 preservation surveys; and provide technical consultations and educational materials to thousands of libraries, archives, museums, and historical organizations nationwide. Outreach services would especially focus on collecting institutions in the Gulf Coast, Appalachia, and Intermountain West regions. The grant would also support a one-year fellowship in preventive conservation.

The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) requests two-year funding support to continue and broaden the reach of activities of CCAHA's preservation field services programs through preservation planning activities, the Regional Heritage Stewardship Program, educational programs, and outreach services. Goals for preservation field services activities in 2019-20 include: To competitively offer NEH-subsidized preservation needs assessments, emergency plans, and digital preservation assessments to 15 mid-sized institutions; to sustain the work of the Regional Heritage Stewardship Program in the Deep South and Appalachia, and launch a new regional program in the Intermountain West Region centered in Utah; to provide two national conferences on balancing accessibility with collections care and two national colloquia on diversity and inclusion; to offer a one-year preventive conservation fellowship; and to continue to provide a range of ongoing support services.
