Evaluating your organization’s preservation practices, with the goal of addressing weaknesses and building on existing strengths, is an essential part of moving any preservation program forward. This one-day workshop teaches representatives of cultural and historic resources organizations how to conduct a general preservation assessment with a peer institution. Participants will be introduced to a peer-to-peer model for preservation assessment, learn the skills needed to be an effective assessor of preservation practices, and gain experience through practical activities conducted as part of the workshop. Attendees will also receive a peer assessment handbook, a bibliography of preservation resources, and a template for sharing the findings of your assessments.

If you’re ready to work with your peers to find actionable solutions to difficult preservation challenges by conducting an assessment, this workshop is for you. Participants will leave this workshop with an understanding of the following:

    • The core components of a general preservation peer-assessment
    • The tools an assessor can use to document and share their findings and recommendations
    • Where to find additional preservation resources
    • How to structure and schedule a visit for a peer assessment
    • How to create actionable recommendations for your peer
