Collections Care Today: HHI 2014 Findings
Collections Stewardship
Georgia World Congress Center  Sunday, April 26  3:30-4 p.m.     B315 
In 2004, Heritage Preservation conducted a national survey, HHI 2004, to assess the condition of collections held by archives, libraries, historical societies, museums, and scientific and archeological collections in the U.S. The survey resulted in unprecedented new funding for collections care, including the IMLS Connecting to Collections (C2C) initiative. Ten years later a new survey, HHI 2014, will measure progress following the C2C investment, outline future needs and validate successes.
