Fri, 11/01/2019 - 16:12

Applications for DHPSNY's FREE Planning & Assessment Services are due Friday, November 15—that's TWO WEEKS from today! If you’ve been thinking about applying or putting it off, don’t worry, it’s not too late to start!  To begin, first decide which of our free services is the best fit for your program.

We are currently accepting applications for all four of our services:

  • Archival Needs Assessments are an excellent way to examine your archival program holistically through an external lens.
  • Preservation Surveys consist of 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 are 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 Planning & Assessment pagefeatures links to information on each service, as well as resources such as sample applications and answers to frequently asked questions.

If you're still unsure which service to apply for or whether your institution is ready, DHPSNY staff is here to help. For assistance, questions about eligibility, or additional information, contact DHPSNY Program Manager Anastasia Matijkiw at (215) 545-0613 extension 338 or
