Inter-Agency Collaboration: Piloting a Visual Resources Consortium to Meet Society of Architectural Historians Preservation Goals through an NEH Grant-Funded Project (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Inter-Agency Collaboration: Piloting a Visual Resources Consortium to Meet Society of Architectural Historians Preservation Goals through an NEH Grant-Funded Project
Author: Sonja-Sekely-Rowland
Author: Jackie Spafford
Abstract: Mission Statement of the Color Film Emergency Project (excerpt) • This project emerged from the realization that numerous, valuable 35mm slide collections created and amassed by 20th century scholars, preservationists, design practitioners and photographers of the built environment are threatened with loss, destruction, and environmental damage. Some of the factors threatening these collections are the obsolescence of the medium for teaching; the advancing age, and retirement, of the creators; and lack of appropriate archival storage. The SAH, through the Color Film Emergency Project, recognizes the importance of this part of 20th century intellectual history and documentation, and aims to facilitate its preservation, digitization, and access. With NEH funding, staff at UC Riverside and UC Santa Barbara are collaborating to achieve the following two foundational goals: 1. Identification and evaluation of at-risk 35mm slide collections of SAH members. 2. Development of a consortium of institutional partners to improve preservation goals.

Abstract: This paper focuses on inter-agency collaboration in a collection building project. It brings together the goals of the Visual Resources Association and Society of Architectural Historians to preserve at-risk analog image collections, such as 35mm slides, through an NEH grant-funded project. This paper is a tutorial on how to identify a problem, research solutions, gather feedback from peers, and develop a proof of concept that can be submitted to NEH or other funders to realize the project. It requires collaboration and some expertise with grant writing. This presentation provides guidance.
