Survey on preservation statistics

The FY2013 Preservation Statistics Survey, a project to document and
analyze the preservation activities of cultural heritage
institutions in the United States is now available.  Any U.S.
library conducting preservation activities may complete this survey,
which will be open through April 2014.

Preservation activities encompass a broad range of tasks to assure
the long-term access to traditional and digital cultural heritage
collections in libraries, museums, archives, historical societies,
and more.  The Preservation Statistics Survey records how these
preservation programs are administered (leadership, staffing, and
funding) as well as preventive preservation activities (library
binding, mass deacidification, environmental monitoring, disaster
planning, outreach, training, etc.), conservation activities,
reformatting and digitization activities (including the preservation
of sound recordings and moving image collections), and digital
preservation responsibilities.

The FY2013 Preservation Statistics Survey, in its second year, is
based on the Preservation Statistics survey program coordinated by
the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) from 1984 through 2008.
The Preservation Statistics Survey is a project of the Preservation
and Reformatting Section (PARS) of the Association of Library
Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS).

For additional information, including instructions, a worksheet, and
