9:15 am.-4 pm   Workshop

This workshop, presented by the Conservation Center for Art and
Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) <URL:>, focuses on
the special needs of your special collections.  In order to provide
optimum care for your collections, should you invest in planning? In
stabilizing the environment?  In cataloging and describing?  In
digitization?  Or in conservation treatment?  Often, the honest
answer is "all of the above," but since this response can lead to
paralysis, it's important to identify a starting place.  The key to
moving ahead may be the development of a funding strategy for

On the federal level, funding sources are available to move your
cultural organization ahead with preservation initiatives.  These
federal grants can leverage other donations, bringing more money and
attention to your collections, ensuring that the treasures in your
special collections will be available for the appreciation of future

Through thoughtful planning and solid grant writing, your
organization can be competitive in applying for high-profile federal
grants.  This workshop will examine the planning process that
reviewers want to see in place, as well as the components that make
a grant request compelling.  Examples will be drawn from success
stories at museums, libraries, and archives.

The workshop will address:

    *   Planning:  Moving from a preservation needs assessment to a
        funding strategy

    *   Potential funding sources:  Triaging your time to focus on
        your best funding prospects

    *   Writing the request:  Anticipating the funder's questions
        and answering them concisely

    *   Evaluation:  Incorporating the new standards

Speaker: Lee Price, Director of Development at the Conservation
Center for Art and Historic Artifacts, has worked as a fundraising
consultant for many local and national cultural institutions.  He
has written successful grant requests for preservation funding from
the Institute for Museum and Library Services, the National
Endowment for the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts,
the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, and Save
America's Treasures.

As a special feature of this workshop, representatives from the
National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute of Museum
and Library Services will join the workshop for a Funders' Panel at
the conclusion of the day.

The workshop is hosted by The University of Maryland Libraries. This
workshop is partially subsidized through funding from the National
Endowment for the Humanities.
