Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York (DHPSNY) is a statewide program that provides free planning and education services to support the vast network of collecting institutions such as archives, libraries, historical societies, museums, and other organizations that safeguard and ensure access to New York's historical records and library research materials.
Your safety and well-being is our highest priority as we respond to COVID-19 and its effects on New York communities. Although many of our events and services must be moved online, please know that the DHPSNY team is here for you—more than ever, during this uncertain time, we hope our services, resources, and community can offer inspiration, connection, guidance, and hope.
To help New York State’s collecting institutions navigate this period of uncertainty, the DHPSNY team is keeping track of helpful information in the DHPSNY COVID-19 Information Aggregate. Updated weekly, this collection tracks an array of the best sources around, including newly accessible on-demand learning opportunities, funding for cultural institutions, and the latest updates from local, state, federal, and international leaders in the field.
