“A Survey of Preservation Activities in Cultural Heritage Institutions – FY2012″ is a pilot survey coordinated by the Preservation and Reformatting Section (PARS) of the American Library Association (ALA) and the Association of Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS).
The goal of this survey is to document the state of preservation activities in this digital era via quantitative data that facilitates information sharing and tracking changes in the preservation and conservation fields over time.
Any cultural heritage institution with preservation activities may complete this survey. The survey will be open from April 25, 2013 through June 25, 2013.
Questions focus on preservation activities for fiscal year 2012 (as defined by your institution) and will document your institution’s administration and staffing of preservation activities, budget and expenditures, general preservation programming (disaster planning, education, outreach and more), conservation treatment, preservation reformatting and digitization, and digital preservation activities.
