Survey on preservation statistics--addendum

From: Holly Robertson <preservationstatistics<-a>
Date: Tuesday, April 8, 2014
The FY2013 Preservation Statistics Survey is open with an extended
the deadline of April 30, 2014:


If you participated in the pilot survey last year, please respond
again this year.  Your annual commitment to respond with your
institution's preservation data allows us to conduct important
analysis of library preservation programs over time and to quantify
trends in our field.  The results of last year's pilot survey, The
FY2012 Preservation Statistics Report, has been used by preservation
and conservation administrators to plan, evaluate, and advocate for
their programs as well as by preservation educators to revise their
curriculum and respond to emerging preservation practices.

If you are a first time participant, please let us help with any
questions you may have.  The survey is open to any library in the
United States and is entirely online; a helpful Instructions and
Definitions document will guide you through the survey and a
worksheet is available to help you track and calculate your
institution's data (see link above for additional details).  If you
summarize your preservation program's achievements in an annual
report or grant narrative, you quite likely already have most of the
data requested by this survey.

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

Please contact the Preservation Statistics Survey team with any
questions or feedback: preservationstatistics<-a t->gmail< . >com
