Do you want to get a preservation grant to take care of your
collections? Many institutions have used grant-funded projects to
enhance the level of care they can provide for their collections,
and sometimes even to jump start their preservation programs.

"Creating and Funding Preservation Projects to Enhance Collection
Care" is a one-day workshop that begins with identifying and setting
priorities among collection needs. With a clear sense of needs, the
second part of the workshop reviews sources of grant funding
available to your institution. The third part of the workshop
addresses the key preservation questions asked on grant
applications--participants answer the questions on behalf of their
institutions, building the elements of a proposal for their own
collection. The workshop emphasizes working collaboratively with
colleagues to develop and receive feedback on project proposals.

By the end of the workshop day, participants will have:

    Outlined a preservation project proposal specific to their
    Identified possible funding sources
    Tested their ideas with other workshop participants

Who should attend: Administrators and staff responsible for care of
the collection in all types of libraries, museums and archives, with
an emphasis on small-to-medium sized institutions without
preservation grant writing experience. By registering for the
workshop, the institution commits to supporting the attendee(s) to
achieve the workshop's goals to develop and submit proposals for
preservation projects to enhance collection care. When possible, TWO
attendees from an institution should attend so they can work
together on project development.

Cost: No charge to the institution. WESTPAS is funded in part by the
National Endowment for the Humanities.

Registration: Pre-registration required. Register online at: WESTPAS
