A Preservation Plan is an essential institutional document that helps collecting institutions thoughtfully and carefully chart a course for the preservation of their collections for five to ten years. Without planning, it can be nearly impossible to effectively budget for staff time and resources. As a result, the care of priceless collections can suffer. This workshop will provide guidance on how to create a Preservation Plan and will provide participants with the opportunity to explore sample plans as well as practice creating goals, objectives, and strategies to make an effective plan.
