"A Survey of Preservation Activities in Cultural Heritage
Institutions--FY2012" is a pilot survey coordinated by the
Preservation and Reformatting Section (PARS) of the American Library
Association (ALA) and the Association of Library Collections and
Technical Services (ALCTS).


The goal of this survey is to document the state of preservation
activities in this digital era via quantitative data that
facilitates information sharing and tracking changes in the
preservation and conservation fields over time.

Any cultural heritage institution with preservation activities may
complete this survey. The survey will be open from April 25, 2013
through June 25, 2013.

Questions focus on preservation activities for fiscal year 2012 (as
defined by your institution) and will document your institution's
administration and staffing of preservation activities, budget and
expenditures, general preservation programming (disaster planning,
education, outreach and more), conservation treatment, preservation
reformatting and digitization, and digital preservation activities.

The survey is available at:
