      CALL FOR APPLICANTS

      September 2007

      CCAHA Offers Subsidized

      Preservation Needs Assessments

      A Preservation Needs Assessment is a key first step in developing a
      preservation plan for collections. In addition to pinpointing areas of
      concern, the preservation needs assessment is widely recognized as a
      valuable tool in fundraising for collections.

      CCAHA's competitive subsidized Preservation Needs Assessment Program for
      paper-based collections is being continued through the generous funding
      of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

      Eligibility:

      If your institution owns a paper-based humanities collection that is
      available to the public on a regularly scheduled basis and has
      historical and educational significance, you are eligible to apply for
      participation in CCAHA's subsidized Preservation Needs Assessment
      Program. To be considered the institution should demonstrate a strong
      commitment to collection care, and the size of the institution' s
      paper-based collection must warrant a full day survey. Institutions
      funded by the federal government are not eligible.

      Process:

      The preservation needs assessment process encompasses a general
      evaluation of the institution' s preservation needs for their collection:
      environment (temperature, relative humidity, pollution and light),
      housekeeping, pest control, fire protection, security, and disaster
      preparedness; collection storage, handling, exhibition, and treatment;
      and preservation planning. The site visit consists of a review of the
      site, an examination of the collection, and interviews with relevant
      staff. The written report provides observations, recommendations, and
      resources to serve as a guide in the development of a comprehensive
      preservation plan for the collection.

      Cost:

      Through funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, CCAHA is
      able to offer a limited number of subsidized preservation needs
      assessments for $350. The grant funding also covers the assessor's
      travel expenses.

      Deadline:

      The deadline for application is Friday, December 7, 2007. Additional
      deadlines may be posted after this date.

      Application forms for the Preservation Needs Assessment Program can be
      found on CCAHA's website: www.ccaha.org <http://www.ccaha. org/> .

      If you have questions or want to discuss the suitability of this program
      for your institution, please contact CCAHA's Preservation Services
