Part of NEDCC’s mission is to help improve the conservation efforts of libraries, archives, historical organizations, and museums.
The Center offers many free resources and services that help support the preservation efforts of cultural heritage institutions as well as private and family collectors.
NEDCC’s free services and resources are made possible in part by support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Many of the Center’s resources were developed with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Andrew Mellon Foundation, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, corporate sponsors, and other funding agencies and private foundations.
