Title: ICP logra nuevos fondos para el Archivo General y la Biblioteca Nacional de Puerto Rico
Author: Primera Hora
Abstract: The Institute of Puerto Rican Culture (ICP) announced that the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) approved three grants totaling $69,932 to continue the implementation of essential projects related to the preservation of collections in the General Archive of Puerto Rico ( AGPR) and the National Library of Puerto Rico (BNPR). These were accepted by the NEH's Preservation and Access Division and its Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions and Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections programs. The projects will start between September and October of this year. The first management will focus on the evaluation, stabilization, treatment and re-storage of the Actas de Cabildo de San Juan Bautista de Puerto Rico, guarded in the AGPR. This historical documentation, dating from 1730 to 1900, contains the oldest data preserved in the Archive on the Spanish colonial period. According to Pedro Roig and José Charón, who are part of the staff of the AGPR Reference Room, these documents are among the most requested by researchers. Their preservation and future digital access is part of the commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the founding of the city of San Juan. Digitization of all 103 volumes of the Proceedings is planned, thanks to another grant awarded last June by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Actas de Cabildo de San Juan Facebook Post (Web Resource)
Title: Actas de Cabildo de San Juan Facebook Post
Author: Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña
Abstract: A grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities made it possible to give conservation treatment to 35 of the 103 books that comprise the Actas de Cabildo or Minutes of the City Council of the City of San Juan Bautista. The process included the evaluation, cleaning, punctual consolidation according to the degradation caused by iron gall ink or by insects, and the flattening of folds that prevent the reading of the text. This treatment was necessary to be able to safely digitize the bindings and make these valuable texts on the history of our Country accessible. Here is a sample of the consolidation treatment by the paper conservator Viviana van Vliet.
