Announcing DHPSNY's Summer 2021 Planning & Assessment Deadline!

Wed, 05/19/2021 - 13:19

Applications are open for DHPSNY's free Planning & Assessment Services, and the next submission deadline is Friday, July 16, 2021. If you have been thinking about applying, now is a great time to start! We are currently accepting applications for all four of our services:

  • Archival Needs Assessments: an excellent way to examine your archival program holistically through an external lens.
  • Preservation Surveys: a general evaluation of your institution's preservation needs, pinpointing areas of concern and recommendations for improvement.
  • Strategic Planning Assistance: helps organizations think proactively about their future and shape a three-year plan to serve as a road map for future decision-making under a trained facilitator.
  • Condition Surveys: a valuable tool for institutions that have received a Preservation Survey (through DHPSNY or another program) and are looking to evaluate the conditions of collection materials on a more granular level.

Our website features helpful tools for navigating the application process, including frequently asked questionssample applications, and our recent webinar DHPSNY's Planning & Assessments: A Crash Course

If you're unsure which service to apply for or whether your institution is ready, we encourage you to reach out to us! DHPSNY staff is available to answer your questions at or 215-545-0613 ext. 338.
