9:30am-4pm  Workshop

A one-day workshop cosponsored by Rutgers University Libraries

This workshop 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 is important to identify a
starting place. One key to moving ahead is the development of a
funding strategy for preservation. 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
while ensuring that the treasures in your special collections will
be available for the appreciation of future generations.  Through
thoughtful planning and effective 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 and 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 Information: Lee Price, Director of Development at the
Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts, has worked as a
fundraising consultant for many regional 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.
