Event Type: Workshop
Date: 9/26/2016
Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Time: 4:00 PM
 "Grantwriting for 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 institution
  • 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 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.

Requirements for Attendance:
1)Completion of an advance assignment to fill out a questionnaire used to gather data needed for the workshop; 2)a commitment to move forward from the workshop with a preservation project proposal.

Cost: No charge to the institution.
